Defining philology in its broadest sense, Romance Philology is broad and deep in its coverage: fields of enquiry include late Latin, the medieval literatures of the Romance languages, historical and general linguistics, and textual criticism. In recent years, particular emphasis has been placed on the development of the Romance languages in the Americas. Two issues are published each year, one in the autumn and one in the spring. In the half century of its publication, Romance Philology established an international reputation as one of the most prestigious journals dedicated to the linguistic history and medieval literature of the Romance languages.
En définissant la philologie dans son sens le plus large, Romance Philology couvre un champ vaste et profond qui inclut le latin tardif, la littérature médiévale des langues romanes, la linguistique générale et historique et la critique textuelle. Ces dernières années, l’accent a été mis sur le développement des langues romanes sur le continent américain. Deux numéros sont publiés chaque année, à l’automne et au printemps. Dans le demi-siècle qui a suivi sa fondation, Romance Philology a acquis une réputation internationale comme étant une des revues les plus prestigieuses dédiées à l’histoire linguistique et la littérature médiévale des langues romanes.
