Herbert Weir Smyth (born Wilmington, Delaware, August 8, 1857–died 1937) was an American classical scholar. His comprehensive grammar of ancient Greek has become a standard reference on the subject in English, comparable to William Watson Goodwin's, whom he succeeded as Eliott Professor of Greek Literature at Harvard University.

He was educated at Swarthmore (A.B. 1876), Harvard (A.B. 1878), Leipzig, and G÷ttingen (Ph.D. 1884). From 1883 to 1885 he was instructor in Greek and Sanskrit at Williams College, and then for two years was reader in Greek at Johns Hopkins. From 1887 to 1901 he was professor of Greek at Bryn Mawr. In the latter year he was called to Harvard as professor of Greek and in 1902 was appointed Eliott professor of Greek literature, succeeding Goodwin. From 1899 to 1900 he was professor of the Greek language and literature at the American Classical School at Athens. From 1889 to 1904 he was secretary of the American Philological Association and editor of its Transactions and in 1904 was elected president. He became a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the American Philosophical Society and vice-president of the Egypt Exploration Society.
