French linguist.

Cerquiglini's "Eloge de la variante" (Paris: Seuil, 1989; trans. in 1999 into English, "In Praise of the Variant," 1999), marks the beginning of the scholarly paradigm referred to as "The New Medievalism" (also: The New Philology), which was critical of modernist positivist editorial practices for medieval texts.

He heads the Center for French and Francophone Studies in the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He also presents the short linguistic program "Merci professeur!" on TV5, the French-language global television network.
