28 of November, 2003, the great Russian linguist Jurij Semenovich
Martem'janov died from the nephritic disease, in the age of 73 years,
3 months and 16 days, in Moscow.

Prof. Martem'janov was born on the 12 of August, 1930, in Vjatka. He
was a most brilliant Russian scholar in the field of transformational
grammar, deep syntax, deep semantics, functional sentence perspective,
text linguistics and artificial inelligence. Also, he was a most
bright Russian proponent of generative syntax and generative
semantics. His articles on these topics (especially on the problems of
deep semantics) have made a great influence on the Russian works in
this field.

Best regards,

Sergej A. Krylov
