Language & Philology

Welcome to our Language & Philology Guide, where you will find tools to help you locate resources to help you learn and study foreign and ancient languages, whether for fun or to further your research in classical or foreign literature. This guide includes Latin, Old and Middle English, Celtic Languages, Old Norse, and Gothic Language.  There are also sections on philology research in general and invented languages. Please note that the lists on these pages are not exhaustive lists on their topics. If you know of another good resource – or would like to see a page on another topic not currently included in this guide – let us know! Likewise, we would appreciate it if you would notify us of any dead links that you come across on these pages. Thank you!
