He was ill, will be missed by most From: lit-ideas-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:lit-ideas-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Robert Paul Sent: 22 February 2015 03:14he was ill To: lit-ideas@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [lit-ideas] Keith Donnellan 1931-2015 Keith Donnellan died yesterday. I have no more details. I'm sure there will soon be some. Robert Paul ———————————————————— I'm afraid that JL's account is mostly mistaken. 'At Cornell, Max Black called Donnellan (who was his graduate student) "Donnell'an". Donnellan was too shy to correct Black -- 'in awe' of Black, even. (Donnellan's preferred, 'correct', pronunciation was, of course, "Donn'ellan"). It was only when Donnellan moved to UCLA that the pronunciation "Do'nnellan" became more standard: he was then allowed to set the record straight.'
