Thanks to all of you who wrote in trying to identify last week's
mystery linguist. We had one incorrect guess (James A. Fox) and ten
entries correctly identifying the young fieldworker as Paul
. Most of these guessers may have cheated, however, since
it seems that Paul discussed his early fieldwork adventures in a class
last year... But in any case, the first correct guess was by Anubha
, who wins an edible prize.
This week's (famous) mystery linguist is shown here giving a Forum
Lecture at the 1966 UCLA Linguistic Institute.
Who is this linguist?
The first correct guess sent to email@example.com wins a prize.
