In trying to tell a story such as that of our controversy, we are evidently speaking of a society in which neither professional 'linguists' nor space for a discipline such as 'linguistics' existed. It is equally obvious that no agreement on objectives, procedures and terms could exist under such conditions. Each scholar was free to pursue his enquiries in accordance with his own interests and with social conventions heading to a variety of disciplines and milieus. In the Italian Quattrocento the establishment of 'paradigms', which according to Kuhn (1962) marks the beginning of a 'normal science', of course, is far away in the future.

This is what Guarino does, in a most sophisticated manner in­ deed. Alternatively, one could yield to the empirical reality of the vernacular, recognize its existence and pose some unprejudiced questions about it; but this implied a breakdown of that relationship between spoken and written lan­ guage which classical grammar summarized in the notion of littera.
