2. Homer’s Originality: Oral Dictated Texts*
Pa eto ga uz čaršiju prođe,
When the messenger came to Kajniđa,
Then he passed along through the market place.
When … to Kajniđa he came,
Then … along the market place he passed.
This kind of construction may emerge more clearly in the mannered dictating than in the necessary flexibility of composition in the hurly-burly of the live singing performance.
