4 Dionys. Isae. 16, τὰ πάθη ποιεῖν γενικώτερον. It is easy and tempting to conjecture γεννικώτερον, ‘with more spirit.’ But the true meaning of γενικώτερον is shown by another passage in Dionysios —de Demosth. c. 39, where ἡ γενικὴ ἁρμονία is a manner of composition which does not stoop to petty neatnesses,—μὴ τὸ κομψὸν ἀλλὰ τὸ σεμνὸν ἐπιτηδεύουσα, as he elsewhere puts it (§ 37): and so γενικώτατοι χαρακτῆρες, ib. Ernesti (Lex. Tech.) is mistaken in rendering γενικὴν ἁρμονίαν by ‘characterem orationis naturalem.’
