While reading a book this past week, I noticed that there was a plaque in the front. It stated that the book had been donated by the Philology Circle. Interested, I looked up the meaning of the word philology. I read the following:
Philology 1) The study of the chronological development of languages or 2) The study of literature and of languages as it is used in literature.
Imagine, a group of people devoted to such a thing. Oddly enough, it sounds like a group of people I would like to befriend.
