El mas claro ejemplo de esa continuidad y fecundidad se halla quiza en la filologia romanica en la obra de Wilhelm Meyer-Lubke (1861-1936), el cual, en sus dos trabajos fundamentales --Gramatica de las lenguas romanicas (Grammatik der romanischen Sprachen, 1890-1902) y Diccionario etimologico romanico (Romanisches Etymologisches Worterbuch, 1911-1920)-- da continuidad a las dos obras fundacionales de Friedrich Diez, conformandolas con el nuevo estado de la investigacion.
