(p.127) Appendix VIII

Long-Vowel Epic Correption in Early Elegy

The following categories are presented with the same goals and methodology as their epic counterparts in appendix VI. In cases where two types of phrase modification could be seen as involved in a phraseological modification, the less likely or secondary process has been noted in parentheses. For more information on the categories, their overlapping nature, and specific instances of correption involved, see chapter 3. Attributions made with slight uncertainty because of existing evidence are always labeled with a question mark (?).
