|MarÌa Teresa Turell
MarÌa Teresa Turell passed away in Barcelona last April 24, at the
untimely age of 63. She was Professor of English Philology and worked
successively at the University of Barcelona, the University Rovira i
Virgili in Tarragona and, since 1993, the University Pompeu Fabra in
She was an expert in forensic linguistics, director of the ForensicLab
at her University and President of the International Association of
Forensic Linguists (IAFL) since 2011. She wrote expert witness reports
on plagiarism detection, authorship attribution and trademark
litigation in over sixty cases in Spain and the US, and often gave
evidence in civil and criminal lower courts and higher courts in Spain.
In 2002 she was elected President of the Spanish Association of
Anglo-American Studies (AEDEAN) and in 2004 Director of the Institut
Universitari de Linguistica Aplicada (IULA) at the University Pompeu
She published extensively within the field of linguistics, lectured at
several universities in Europe and the US, belonged to a large number
of committees and editorial boards, dedicated a good part of her time
to university administration, and was indeed a recognized outstanding
scholar. Maite Turell will be greatly missed by friends and colleagues
and will always be remembered as a person full of energy and optimism
to the very last. Blas de Otero, one of her favourite Spanish poets,
has the answer that could soothe our loss:
If I have lost my life, time, everything
We lost her voice, we still have her words. And our memories.
I threw, as if it were a ring, into the water,
if I have lost my voice in the undergrowth,
I still have the word.
