ROMANCE LINGUISTICS IS ALIVE AND WELL Dieter Wanner The Ohio State University "Romance Linguistics is dead! - Long live Romance Linguistics!" This venerable discipline of an earlier date lives on in its newest incarnations, even though some of its current branches may not look much like their ancestor. I will look at the provocative question of this Cluster from my current North American vantage point, justifying this narrow focus with the fact that the classical age of an all-encompassing Romance philology/linguistics is only a memory. This grand edifice, an impressive achievement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, mainly belongs to the past. For long decades in the twentieth century, a gradual movement away from this high point of philological, (neo)grammatical, and (neo)linguistic knowledge could still be overlooked. By the later part of the last century it became clear that the previous holistic approach and comprehensive perspective had ceased to be at the center of ongoing efforts. But at the same time different kinds of Romance linguistics continue to produce results of impressive vitality. The most forward-looking domain of Romance linguistic activity centers on a resolute attachment to the linguistic theory of the day. A prestigious series
