Carlota Smith (1934-2007)

I've fallen behind with reading LanguageLog of late. Had I been more attentive, I would have known sooner that Professor Carlota Smith, of the linguistics department at UT, died a little over a week ago. I was fortunate enough to be her student for one semester, and the level of dedication she put into that one class, despite coping with constant bouts of chemotherapy, was astonishing. She will be missed by all those she taught.

David's post is here, and the department's page for her is here.
