In Memoriam

SIL has produced a number of distinguished linguists, of whom the best-known is Kenneth Pike. However, others have also contributed to linguistic theory, taught and mentored many younger linguists, produced notable publications, and exhibited admirable personal qualities. In this space, we honor those SIL linguists who have contributed significantly both to SIL and the larger linguistics world. In their lives, they exhibited outstanding scholarship as well as service to others, and we are pleased to honor them.
