Dear URA-LIST community,

as announced on the uralistica.com forum, the Udmurt linguist Ivan Tarakanov, retired professor of the Udmurt State University, has just passed away at the age of 86 years.

Ivan Vasil’evič Tarakanov was one of the most well-known and most important researchers of the Udmurt language in his generation. He published widely on diverse aspects of Udmurt linguistics: lexicology (in particular, Udmurt-Tatar lexical contacts), phonetics, dialectology, Udmurt and comparative Permic morphology. Even quite recently, he participated in the debate around the planned closure (merger) of the Department of Udmurt philology at the Udmurt State University.

A more detailed obituary (in Russian) has appeared at http://news.uralistica.com/?p=11402 .

With condolences to Ivan Tarakanov’s friends, colleagues and the whole research community of Permic studies
