Cecilia Odé (1946-2019) passed away… 
as Peter Austin wrote: “highly knowledgeable about Indigenous languages, and a charming and engaging person”.
I kept meeting Cecilia in various places of the world on various occassions… 
She really was a charming person, engaged researcher of endangered languages, and true friend of their speakers’ communities. 
Laat haar rusten in vrede!

W pożegnaniu na stronie Uniwersytetu Amsterdamskiego napisano:

She completed multiple projects on Russian, Indonesian, Papuan languages, and Paleosiberian languages. For these projects, Cecilia conducted extensive fieldwork in remote areas. Odé was specialised in intonation, ethnolinguistics, and endangered languages. Cecilia Odé’s legacy for the broader public include her documentation of Mpur (Bird’s Head area, Irian Jaya), her extensive documentation of Tundra Yukagir (in Andryushkino, Sakhalin, Yakutia), and the website Endangered Languages. Aside from her work as a researcher, Odé was a video director and photographer and wrote illustrated travel letters about her fieldwork. These travel letters have recently been published in book form and give a good impression of her work and her commitment. Cecilia’s joyful and enthusiastic presence will be sorely missed by her colleagues.

Może można wspomnieć zmarłą, ucząc się o wielojęzyczności i o językach zagrożonych ze strony http://www.endangeredlanguages.nl/ lub przeglądając prezentacje o języku jukagirskim i jego użytkownikach na stronie http://www.fon.hum.uva.nl/cecilia.ode/.
