Subject: Obituary for Professor Terry Crowley


I regret to inform Linguist List readers that Prof Terry Crowley, Waikato University, New Zealand, passed away on the weekend of 15/16 January 2005 aged 51. Prof Crowley was well-known for his research on Australian Aboriginal languages, Oceanic languages (especially those of Vanuatu), pidgins and creoles (particularly Bislama and Cape York Creole), and historical linguistics. His textbook ''Introduction to Historical Linguistics'' has been widely adopted. Prof Crowley is survived by family in Australia.
