      • Well, a typology would be a catalogue of types or the study of types, as in taxonomy, or mythology. Something like 80s London Docklands pubs, or roadhouses, improved pubs, coaching inns, and so on, are types of pubs. A typology of pubs could be drawn up, differentiating various types. Likewise someone focused on urban morphology could have a go at identifying and then cataloguing types of villages, that would be a typology of villages.
