Thanasis Costakis RIP
Thanasis Costakis, doyen of Tsakonian Linguistics, has died, and the next Tsakonian Studies conference at Lenidi will be held in his memory.
I have not heard of his passing anywhere else, and cannot find an obituary online, so I assume it has been this past year.
I was lucky enough to talk to him in Athens in ’95. A kindly old man, and resigned to the death of his language.
