Carol Chomsky

It is with regret that we note the passing of Carol Chomsky. Though her own linguistic work is less familiar to us, like Roslyn Zinn, her presence at the edges of stories casts a long shadow. My parents had dinner with her and her husband a few years ago. They reported that Noam was interesting and very smart, but she was funny and "a real firecracker." Our condolences to the family.
