Comparative Philology was one of the fast developing branches of scientific and scholarly activities during the 19th and mid 20th centuries. Prosperous spin-offs from this field were Comparative Literature and Folklore as well as the different national philologies, including the studies of Germanic, Scandinavian, and Finno-Ugric cultures and languages, but even Germanic Antiquity and Lappology.
