Trevor asked:

 Any idea whether there's a distinction in Hebrew that would parallel the
philologist/linguist distinction in English?

Charles answers:  Not in my personal dialect of spoken Hebrew.  But again,
others on the list may have different ranges of usage than I.  I have always
heard and used the same word.  But I have actually heard philologya for
philology, comparable to philosophya for philosophy.
Anyone else?
Charles
