The contribution studies the frequency of split words in a corpus of Byzantine manuscripts. The analysis confirms the awareness of the phenomenon on the part of the Greek scribes and makes it possible to observe how they approached it, depending on the interaction—not always easily interpretable—between other characteristics of the codex (e.g. the number of characters per line, the arrangement of the text, the writing’s features, the frequency of abbreviations, content, and the degree of the layout’s development).

Abstract

The contribution studies the frequency of split words in a corpus of Byzantine manuscripts. The analysis confirms the awareness of the phenomenon on the part of the Greek scribes and makes it possible to observe how they approached it, depending on the interaction—not always easily interpretable—between other characteristics of the codex (e.g. the number of characters per line, the arrangement of the text, the writing’s features, the frequency of abbreviations, content, and the degree of the layout’s development).
