We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Professor Bernard (Dov) Spolsky, emeritus professor of linguistics at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. Professor Spolsky, who earned his PhD in linguistics from the Université de Montréal and also held his first academic position as Assistant Professor at McGill University, was a profoundly influential voice in the field of applied linguistics. To honour his great achievements and contributions to the field, our colleagues from the American Association of Applied Linguistics have prepared an “In Memoriam” announcement, which can be viewed here: https://www.aaal.org/news/in-memoriam-bernard-dov-spolsky.
