Thanks for answering! That's the spirit, I think: combining highly
specialised theory+methodology (both in itself and applied to language
analysis) with the historico-scientific frame --not, of course, within
the same *course*, but within a *career* in linguistics--.

I would also like to subscribe what I think was one, and probably the
most important one, of Noel's original preoccupations: quite often, language
 analysis seems to be used as a *means to illustrate* (the application of) a
certain *theory+methodology*, instead of centering upon languages
themselves as the main interest of linguists (not only or so much
*language*, *le langage*+*la langue*; but mainly *languages*, *les
langues*) and considering, therefore, the alternative
*theories+methodologies* as nothing else than *means* to attain that goal...
