The presented article is an attempt to question the widespread opinion that the 21st century linguistics is on the methodological crossroads, losing its identity because of its multiparadigmacity and the interdisciplinary character of explanation of linguistic phenomena. Taking into account the obvious consideration that it is linguists themselves who will determine the future of the language studies, the authoress opts for the opposite thesis, making assumption that the first decade of the 21st century is not a decade of decadence. This is a unique period when at the cost of methodological purity, linguists can find a way to mutual understanding which should be a first and the best step into the future, based like the present and the past of linguistics on the constant interaction of tradition and innovation.The final conclusion of the article is that this constant interaction determines the need of meta­linguistic research which could be a potent medicine for many linguist(ics)'s frustration.
