 from lexical storage of individual grammatical features, e.g., person,

 languages and is presently Chair of the Department of Linguistics at the
 University of Pittsburgh.

 many of here activites from 1949 to 1992. During those years she went "the
 last five feet;" that is, she spent much time with the Mazatec people,
 teaching them to use the books that had been written and translated for
 As well as her work among the Mazatec, Eunice Pike has traveled widely as a
 linguistic consult with the Summer Institute of Linguistics, especially in
