A study of the linguistic theory of Marcus Terentius Varro
Marcus Terentius Varro (116–27 B.C.) was one of the most prolific writers in antiquity. However, of his De Lingua Latina only six of 25 books have survived, and these are neither complete nor free of textual corruption. This study is an attempt to provide an adequate, consistent, and comprehensive account of the linguistic theory with which Varro operated insofar as it can be recovered from the remains of De Lingua Latina.
