The Fine Art of Philology

Postby Thucydides » Thu Apr 29, 2004 6:31 pm

Two questions:

1) What are the good philology books? I've got Sihler, and I understand that it's fairly good/authoratative/reasonable (and expensive...). What are the other important works? How do they differ? Are they worth obtaining?

2) How exactly is philology taught? At universities as part of classics courses I would imagine, but otherwise? I have no idea. All I know I've picked up by browsing Sihler (a fascinating past-time... can take up hours)
And what are your backgrounds in this subject (Paul, Ptolemaias, Annis et al?)

As far as know it's not only part of classics course but also of medieval English or French for example. Any old language really :wink: . Can't say much else about philology though :P
