Con profunda tristeza, comunicamos que el día 20 de marzo de 2012 
falleció Adriana Álvarez rodeada de sus seres queridos en General 
Roca, Argentina. 

Aquellos que como yo tuvieron la alegría de conocer a Adriana la 
recordarán siempre como una mujer de enorme humildad, una 
profesora querida y respetada y una gran persona y amiga. 

Adriana fue parte fundamental en el desarrollo de la Gramática 
Generativa en la Argentina, no solo por sus investigaciones en 
adquisición del lenguaje sino también por haber alentado con su 
incondicional apoyo y su generosidad infinita a las nuevas 
generaciones de lingüistas. También cumplió un papel fundamental 
desde su puesto de  directora de la Maestría en Lingüística de la 
Universidad Nacional del Comahue. 

Se la va a extrañar enormemente.

English Translation:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Adriana 
Álvarez, who died on March 20, 2012 in General Roca, Argentina, 
surrounded by her loved ones.

Those among us who had the pleasure of knowing Adriana will forever 
remember her as a woman of tremendous humility, a beloved professor 
and a great person and friend.

Adriana contributed greatly to the development of Generative Grammar 
in Argentina, not only with her research in Language Acquisition, but 
also by encouraging new generations of linguists with her unconditional 
support and endless generosity. She also played a fundamental role in 
her position as director of the Masters in Linguistics of the Universidad 
Nacional del Comahue.

She will be greatly missed.
