Dear Alison,

I am so grieved to learn of the death of your dear father. May God bless and sustain you in this great loss. I hold you in my heart and pray fervently for all your family. affectionately, Maureen O'Riordan

I will miss Dell very much. He mentored me through my first Language in Society article when i was just out of grad school, and later supported me in a battle to keep my professorial position at my university when i became disabled. His work in language and education took a critical bent -- something not always remarked on -- with regard to issues of race, language, and power. His death is a loss to anthropology, linguistics, folklore, Native American language study.

A giant figure in the fields of linguistic anthropology, folklore, and sociolinguistics has departed. I feel particularly saddened because he was my teacher, my supervisor on the Language in Society journal, and a very valuable member of my Ph.D. dissertation committee. He was also responsible for creating and launching the Educational Linguistics program at the Graduate School of Education of the University of Pennsylvania from which I graduated. He will be missed.

Dell always had time to talk to and help out a grad student or new kid on the linguistic anthro block. I know from experience. His intellectual and moral passion shaped who we are today. We stand on the shoulders of a warm hearted giant.

Dell Hymes forever changed anthropology by reinventing the field of linguistic anthropology. This great scholar and warm kind man will be deeply missed.
