This chapter discusses the remainder of the vocabulary of the ethical treatises in order to see what information it can yield about the original context of the disputed books. Although regularities that continue from book to book may prove to be difficult to trace, the discussion aims to detect the influence of stylistic preferences in fluctuations that are the result not only of style but principally of topic.

Keywords: vocabulary; ethical treatises; original context; stylistic preferences; influence; style; disputed books
