Abstract

The goal of this project is to investigate the underexplored Byzantine meter, within the framework of the modern linguistic theory of information structure, using the Ghent corpus of Byzantine book epigrams (DBBE). The focus will be on the dodecasyllable and decapentasyllable, and their variants.
