Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of terms and concepts of words in oral theory. For over 2500 years many of the most learned and eccentric scholars of the Greek language have concerned themselves with the topic of etymology: the science of words - their origin and their development. The most productive source of difficult, even inexplicable, words was Homer's 28,000 or so verses of epic poetry.

Keywords: etymology; Homer; oral theory
