I loved the phrase "jubilance is an explanation for a lot of the things that
happen in language," which the Times article took from a New Yorker piece,
perhaps the one written by Michelle Stacey in 1989, mentioned earlier in the
obit. I'd like to see the full quotation, but I can't find this New Yorker
article. Can anyone provide the full quote or, better still, a link to the
New Yorker article online?

Thank you.
