Speziali al lavoro su parole nuove: Uguccione e Dante


none1noHugutius and Dante working as apothecaries on new words. In his 'Convivio', Dante bases his etymologies of the words 'auctor' and 'auctoritas' on the 'Derivationes' by Hugutius from Pisa. From this author, he also draws the etymon tied to the verb 'auieo', that is built up with all five vowels. This paper argues that such verb arises out of a paleographic tradition, originating from a wrong interpretation of a passage by Isidore’s 'Etymologies', taken up by Hugutius. The manuscript tradition has worked on the Latin text as the apothecaries do. As an image of the 'Derivationes' reminds to us, the apothecaries chop and mix all the ingredients they need to produce new perfumes or medicines. Dante has relied on Hugutius’ 'auctoritas' when he used this verb and the ethymons.Un'anticipazione di una parte di questo articolo è stata data al VI Convegno dell'Internationales Mittellateiner Komitee (Napoli-Benevento, 10-14 novembre 2010: 'Auctor et auctoritas in Latinis Medii Aevi Litteris').noneA.
