Philology

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Philology considers both form and meaning in linguistic expression. It combines linguistics and literary studies.[1][2]

Classical philology is the philology of the Greek, Latin and Sanskrit languages.[3]

Any classical language can be studied philologically, and indeed describing a language as "classical" is to imply the existence of a philological tradition associated with it.
