As Chair of ICAME, I am writing on behalf of the ICAME Board and membership to express our deep sorrow at the news of the death of John Sinclair. Sorrow is replacing the initial shock and disbelief that one of our pioneers, still so young and active, will not continue always to be there, stimulating and inspiring our thoughts, making us think twice at each step about the fundamental principles which ought to underlie our work. Many corpus linguists have known John Sinclair for most of their adult working lives, and he leaves a unique imprint in the evolution of the field, as well as occupying a huge place in our affections. We each felt that we owned a little part of John, and our hearts go out to those for whom his loss has been deepest, his family and close friends.
