I am indebted to Robert O'Neill for giving me permission to use his excellent articles on Language Acquisition. It is with great sadness that I learnt recently of Robert's death. He died on 29th July 2014 at the age of 81. Both Robert and Julian Dakin (for whom Robert also had great regard) were hugely influential in their approaches and ideas which live on in their writing. I had the great fortune to work at The English Language Centre Hove over a period of 18 years where Robert had his office and contributed generously to teacher training and development. He will be greatly missed in many quarters.
