Parole chiave:Greek in the Ottoman Empire, Cross-Cultural Diplomatic Communication, Multilingualism, Community of Practice, Text Community
Modern Mediterranean is a multicultural and multilingual environment where written communication shows a high variability. The present work aims at
shedding light on a specific set of Greek documents dating from the 15th and 16th century and belonging to the collection Miscellanea Documenti Turchi of the Venetian State Archive. It proposes that, by analysing the lexical variability, the textual patterns and the pragma-linguistic features of such documents, their production can be explained within the framework of a text community which develops within a community of practice.
