Excerpt from Transactions of the Cambridge Philological Society, Vol. 1: From 1872 to 1880; With Introductory Essay, Reviews, and Appendix
The appearance of this volume is due in the first instance to a wish expressed by several members of the Cambridge Philological Society i... tself to possess an account of its earlier proceedings. It has hitherto been the custom of the Society to print and privately circulate amongst its members Memoranda of the subjects discussed and business done at its meetings. These have varied very considerably in amount from a mere mention of the title of a paper to a full or even complete account of its contents. Though these Memoranda were not prepared for publication, they have been reprinted as they stand in order to preserve the record. But their contributors have been allowed the opportunity of adding corrections; and references have been added where a paper has been printed elsewhere in extenso. In one case a paper chie¿y of controversial interest has been omitted at the request of its author. It may be added that some of the papers or abstracts of papers, although they have been printed as Memoranda,' have never been published before. Amongst these I may men tion Mr. Savage's on the lengthening of a short vowel in Greek before a mute and liquid with the tables attached.
