Curtius Georg

Curtius, Georg (1820-1885), brother of Ernst, was born at Lubeck. After studying at Bonn and Berlin, he taught at Dresden and Berlin, and was professor of Classical Philology at Prague, Kiel, and Berlin. He contributed largely to philological literature, especially to that dealing with the Greek language, and many of his works have been translated into English. He was a great exponent of the doctrine of sporadic change in phonetic development, a doctrine at variance with that of preceding philologists, and one that has since been questioned by some of his disciples.
