On the Latin language by Marcus Terentius Varro( Book )

61 editions published between 1938 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Varro (M. Terentius), 116-27 BC, of Reate, renowned for his vast learning, was an antiquarian, historian, philologist, student of science, agriculturist, and poet. He was a republican who was reconciled to Julius Caesar and was marked out by him to supervise an intended national library. Of Varro's seventy works involving hundreds of volumes we have only his treatise On Agriculture and part of his monumental achievement De Liingua Latina, On the Latin Language, a work typical of its author's interest not only in antiquarian matters but also in the collection of scientific facts. Originally it consisted of twenty-five books in three parts: etymology of Latin words (books 1-7); their inflexions and other changes (books 8-13); and syntax (books 14-25). Of the work survive (somewhat imperfectly) books 5 to 10. These are from the section (books 4-6) which applied etymology to words of time and place and to poetic expressions; the section (books 7-9) on analogy as it occurs in word formation; and the section (books 10-12) which applied analogy to word derivation. Varro's work contains much that is of very great value to the study of the Latin language. -- Jacket

On the Latin language : in two volumes by Marcus Terentius Varro( Book )

27 editions published between 1938 and 2006 in English and Latin and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Varro (M. Terentius), 116-27 BC, of Reate, renowned for his vast learning, was a man of affairs, an antiquarian, historian, philologist, student of science, agriculturist, and poet. He was a republican who was reconciled to Julius Caesar and was marked out by him to supervise an intended national library, and in spite of Anthony's hostility lived to be 90 years old. Of Varro's more than seventy works involving hundreds of volumes we have only one of his old age on country affairs (Rerum Rusticarum Libri Tres) and part of his monumental achievement De Lingua Latina, a work typical of its author's interest not only in antiquarian matters but also in the collection of scientific facts. Originally it consisted of twenty-five books in three parts - etymology of Latin words (books 1-7); their inflexions and other changes (books 8-13); and syntax (books 14-25). Of the work survive (somewhat imperfectly) books 5 to 10 inclusive from the section (books 4-6) which applied etymology to words of time, place, and poetic expressions, the section (books 7-9) on analogy as it occurs in word formation; and the section (books 10-12) which applied analogy to works of time, place and poetic expressions. Varro's work contains much that is of very great value to the study of the Latin language and has noteworthy anticipations of modern linguistic ideas and methods. -- Jacket
