Philologists on the Moon. To celebrate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the first true moonwalk (20 July 1969), and to mark what are perhaps the final days before the galaxy becomes so cluttered by convertibles and other orbiting detritus as to be indistinguishable from Las Vegas, Romance Philology proposes a venture to the moon, one which allows medievalists to remind us of the legends and literary inventions that have long shaped our concepts of the moon and her companions, and which will also permit linguists to gather, for future generations, the lexical specimens that mark our changing perceptions of the night sky, of lunar time, and the phases of galaxy formation. Ad astra per philologiam.
