We deeply regret to announce the passing of our esteemed colleague andprofessor, M. Teresa Turell i Julià.

Dr. Turell, Professor of English at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, andDirector of the Institut Universitari de Lingüística Aplicada between 2004and 2007, was also the founder and director of the research group UVAL andof the ForensicLab.

In recent years, she fought fiercely against illness, without everabandoning her interest and dedication to quality research in appliedlinguistics, especially in the areas of variation, sociolinguistics andforensic linguistics.

Up until the last moment, she remained as brave and active as her illnesswould permit in teaching, research, directing theses, leading her group anddefending the IULA as a center of reference in applied linguistics.

She will be hugely missed.

The wake will be held Thursday at the Tanatori de Collserolaafter 16h and the funeral will also be held at the Tanatori de Collserolaon Friday, April 26 and 12h15.
