Philology is the study of both oral and written language from historical sources. It is an intriguing academic discipline because it can help us understand more about the way various languages have been used in the past and what that says about historical cultures and peoples. Students who want to start developing their knowledge of philology typically do so in college when they're able to take a philology class. However, this is a multidisciplinary subject, which can be hard to fully understand. If you're struggling with your coursework, you may want to consider getting started with college philology tutoring. Varsity Tutors can help you learn more about how philology tutoring can make a positive impact on your academic pursuits.
The study of philology is multidisciplinary in that it involves tools and theories from fields like:
- Textual criticism
- Literary criticism
Practitioners of philology use their specialized knowledge and skill set to establish the authenticity of historical uses of language, determine something's original form, and decipher something's meaning. If you're interested in deciphering older languages that aren't fully understood, your philology tutoring sessions can focus more on this. You can learn about the discovery of the Rosetta Stone and recent pursuits to understand the Mayan language. This personalization is possible because you and your philology tutor will work together in a one-on-one setting where your needs and goals always remain the center of attention. This means your tutor can give you customized lesson plans that are targeted specifically with your growth in mind. In all, this creates a learning environment that is hard to match through a traditional classroom setting.
