HINWEISE ZUR ANWENDUNG
  • Arcadian dialect was an ancient Greek dialect spoken in Arcadia in the central Peloponnese and in Cyprus. Its resemblance to Mycenaean Greek, as it is known from the Linear B corpus, suggests that Arcadocypriot is its descendant. Proto-Arcadocypriot (~1200 BC) is supposed to have been spoken by Achaeans in the Peloponnese before the arrival of Dorians; for this reason it is also called southern Achaean. The isoglosses of the Cypriot and Arcadian dialects testify that the Achaeans had settled in Cyprus. The establishment happened before 1100 B.C. With the arrival of Dorians in the Peloponnese, a part of the population moved to Cyprus and the rest was limited to the Arcadian mountains. After the collapse of the Mycenaean world, communication was disrupted and Cypriot was differentiated from Arcadian. It was written up to the 3rd century B.C. with Cypriot syllabary. Arcadian kept many characteristics of Mycenaean, that had disappeared in Attic and Ionic, such as the /w/ sound (digamma).
