      Congratulations Professor Bar-Adon on a well-deserved honor. Your silver streams of hair, black suits, child language research experiences, concise theoretical remarks, together with accounts of the rebirth of Hebrew in Israel made afternoon grad seminars in Calhoun Hall at UT in the 1970’s guiding landmarks in my linguistics formation that I still savor and use today.
