    Τιθαιβωσσουσι Μελισσαι (Homer, Odyssey 13.106).Alexander Nikolaev - 2022 - Classical Quarterly 72 (1):39-52.
    This article examines the verb τιθαιβώσσω, a Homeric hapax legomenon of unknown meaning and etymology: it reviews its use in Hellenistic poetry and strives to provide a contextually plausible meaning for the verb (‘to sting’), as well as for the related adjective θιβρός (‘stinging, mordant, piquant’). It argues that τιθαιβώσσω is etymologically related to Latin fīgere ‘insert, pierce’, fībula ‘pin’, Lithuanian díegti ‘to poke, sting’, and Tocharian B tsākā- ‘to bite’.

    Showing Praise in Greek Choral Lyric and Beyond.Alexander Nikolaev - 2012 - American Journal of Philology 133 (4):543-572.
    In this article I examine several passages in Greek choral lyric where the verb δείκνυμι is construed with a direct object meaning “song” or “hymn” and show that this usage finds an exact parallel in the Rigveda, where the cognate root diś- is likewise employed with “song ” as its object. Greekδεῖξαι ὕμνον, μέλος, etc., “to show forth song,” is thus argued to be an archaism of the melic poetry that goes back to the Indo-European poetic language. The use of (...)

    Shame and Insult in Anatolia: Luvo-Hittite zammurāi-.Alexander Nikolaev - 2021 - Journal of the American Oriental Society 139 (1):183.
    The origin of the verb zammurāi- is unknown. The goal of this paper is to 1) clarify the verb’s meaning and 2) its derivational morphology, 3) discuss its purported etymological connection with Lyc. zum̃ me ̃ / zum̃ mã and Luv. zamman-, and 4) propose an Indo-European etymology for the root, which, if correct, will make zammurāi- relevant for the continued debate about reflexes of Indo-European dorsal stops in Luvic languages.

    The Aorist Infinitives in -EEIN in Early Greek Hexameter Poetry.Alexander Nikolaev - 2013 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 133:81-92.
    This paper examines the distribution of thematic infinitive endings in early Greek epic in the context of the long-standing debate about the transmission and development of Homeric epic diction. There are no aorist infinitives in - in Homer which would scan as -before a consonant or caesura (for example *). It is argued that this artificially ending - should be viewed as an actual analogical innovation of the poetic language, resulting from a proportional analogy to the futures. The total absence (...)

    Moral muting in US newspaper op-eds debating the attack on Iraq.Alexander Nikolaev & Douglas V. Porpora - 2008 - Discourse and Communication 2 (2):165-184.
    This article examines a distinct form of moral argumentation found to be common in a corpus of 500 editorials and opinion pieces written in 23 US newspapers and news magazines between August and October 2002 debating whether or not the US should attack Iraq. The purpose of the article is to delineate this communicative phenomenon, which we call moral muting. Moral muting occurs when a message either blunts the moral considerations involved in a case or presents an equivocal moral meaning. (...)
