An apology is perhaps due for the title of this translation. Of the alternative renderings “Glottology' and the more familiar and for better or worse established • Philology' I have with some hesitation chosen the latter ; and in the text, wherever they occur, the words 'glottologo' and 'filologo' appear as “philologist' and scholar' respectively. The epithet “Aryan' as against Indo-European' or · Indo-Germanic' I felt I had no right to alter.
In making the translation I have had the advantages of the author's latest corrections and additions. Any remarks of my own have been given in foot-notes enclosed in square brackets. In many of the quotations from other than Italian writers I have sought where opportunity offered to ensure a faithful representation of the sense by consulting the originals.
