Which one is it?

If it's the former, do I scan it as two short syllables?

Thanking in advance (the usual suspect, of course :D ),

What can I do for a Philogical Project?

For school I want to do a piece of work/some sort of project to show what I've read about philology.

The trouble is that it seems to be the nature of philology (and of how I've learnt about it) that it tends to be very bitty and disjointed - made up of small facts and observations: I find it hard to think of one fairly substantial coherent project I could put together.

I've been reading, ...

H & Q Chapter 3

Just want to make sure I understand what's going on:

I got: The gods did not guard Homer's eyes: they have guarded well books about the excellence of men.

anyone out there have interests outside the world of academics and ancient languages.
reading (other than academic)

i am on a sabbatical from school, and i thought learning latin would be a great way to keep the mind from getting stale. but i tend to get distracted rather easily. so i though i would distract everyone else!
