The applied science of language, if confined to the speech of a single country or district, forms the particular grammar of the language there spoken; but if it embrace many languages, testing their formation, construction, and powers by the common standard of universal grammar, it is termed by different authors comparative grammar, comparative philology, glottology, or glossology.
