Dear friends,
Suzanne Fleischman died last night, Wed. Feb 2nd, of complications
associated with chemotherapy for leukemia, at the age of 50.
As you know she was a pioneer in grammaticalization, historical
discourse analysis, historical narratology, orality and literacy,
and more recently, medical discourse. She will be sorely missed.
Plans for a celebration of her life are pending.
