(p.172) 8 Cruxes in Ulysses
Foundational Essays in James Joyce Studies

Edmund L. Epstein

University Press of Florida

This chapter focuses on the word pattern and formation of Joyce's Ulyssess. Joyce made much use of speech mannerisms and slang terms, and the likes of these appear constantly on every page of Ulysses, causing great hardship to those readers who realize that they are in foreign territory. He often used long or unusual words for an effect of exaggerated dryness and scientific accuracy; and sometimes these words are difficult to define, even with the aid of a large dictionary, because Joyce seems to make them up out of Greek and (especially) Latin roots. He prominently used a word-list that includes all of the identifiable quotations in Ulysses, probably listed under their key words; where there is more than one key word, cross-references would have to be used.

Keywords:   Ulysses, word pattern, speech mannerism, slangs, word-list, dictionary
