In remembrance of Richard Oehrle

In remembrance of Richard Oehrle

Feb 23 2018

Richard ("Dick") Oehrle, who was on the Stanford Linguistics faculty in the mid-1970s, passed away on February 21 after a two-year battle with a brain tumor.  After leaving Stanford, Dick taught at the University of Arizona for many years.  He later worked in industry, for Cataphora, and then for Ernst & Young (when it bought Cataphora).  He was known for his early work on the English dative alternation, and later work in semantics and categorial grammar. He will be fondly remembered.
