"Some years ago, a television anchorman told me I came across badly because I pronounced well. Excellence is not perceived well; it is persecuted. It seems that vulgarity is the natural manner of people." -- Fernando Lázaro Carreter

The Spanish language mourns the passing of one of its leading lights.

Thanks for reminding us, Aurora Mar 4, 2004

Language helps us capture the world. The less language we have, the less world we capture, or the more defectively we capture it. A greater expressive capacity implies a greater capacity to comprehend things. Where language suffers impoverishment, thought itself is impoverished.
