χωρὶς εἶναι: is different in na ture or kind. Cf. Soph. O. C. 808 χωρὶς τό τ᾽ εἰπεῖν πολλὰ καὶ τὰ καίρια to say much and to speak fittingly are different things, Euthyd. 289 d δῆλον οὖν ὅτι καὶ περὶ λόγους χωρὶς τοῦ ποιεῖν τέχνη καὶ τοῦ χρῆσθαι evidently, as regards speeches, the art of making them differs from the art of using them. So also δίχα.

δημηγορεῖν: harangue, with more regard for the impression than for the treatment of the subject. —

ὁρᾷς: either with or without ὡς or ὅτι, stands freq. at the beginning of clauses, like our you see, i.e. you see for yourself. Cf. Xen. Hier. i. 16 ἀλλ᾽ ὁρᾷς: ἐκεῖνό γε οὐκ ἂν ἔτι πείσαις ἀνθρώπων οὐδένα ὡς κτἑ., Ar. Pax 331 ἀλλ᾽ ὁρᾶτ̓, οὔπω πέπαυσθε; Plato Crat. 432 c ὁρᾷς οὖν ὅτι ἄλλην χρὴ εἰκόνος ὀρθότητα (principle of correctness) ζητεῖν. Different is the interr. ὁρᾷς do you see? Cf. Apol. 24 d ὁρᾷς, Μέλητε, ὅτι σιγᾷς καὶ οὐκ ἔχεις εἰπεῖν;

Ἀλκιβιάδης: cf. 309 b.

τοῦ: const. with εἶναι.
