Abstract

There is little enthusiasm among the respondents for the sense of crisis that is central to the main article. Neither the declining autonomy of linguistics nor the diminishing primacy of the ‘Renaissance vision’ of the world are seen as negative. On the contrary, the increasing interweaving of linguistics and neighbouring sciences is widely supported and embraced as a source of opportunities and dynamism. The permanent renewal of the linguistic approach does not inspire any existential doubts, either. This optimism is accompanied, however, by a concern for safeguarding the quality of linguistic education.
