Dearest colleagues and friends.

Dearest colleagues and friends.

I was very shocked and saddened to hear that our dear colleague Alan R King has pased away. He was just 64. This is really sad and a great loss to all of us who have had contact with him.

At ProZ.com Alan contributed to the Linguistic Diversity forum since its very beginning in 2007: https://www.proz.com/forum/389

Alan was a very relevant linguist, he deserved having his own article at Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_R._King - he will be remembered as a notable researcher in Euskera (the language of the Basque people of Spain and France) and Nawat (a Mesoamerican language).

I wish to express my sincere condolence to his acquaintances. May he rest in peace: https://www.proz.com/profile/625546
