Description

In an academic world of competing theoretical schools, ontological objects, long views, and swerves, scholars can neglect the building blocks of the texts, histories, and languages we study; too often, we overlook the words themselves. This session will focus on individual words or phrases—their ancestries, cognates, and legacies. In so doing, we hope to bring together a diverse range of scholars who share a philological bent. The session welcomes papers from linguists, literary critics, historians, theologians, and others who wish to turn their attention to the rich worlds contained in single linguistic grains.
