The passing of Elizabeth Bates (Liz) has been a great loss to our field. Many colleagues have simply put it this way: the field will never be the same without Liz. Many others have written articles and monographs in honor of her contributions to psycholinguistics, cognitive science, and neuroscience (Karmiloff-Smith, 2004; Tomasello and Slobin, 2004; Hernandez, Li and MacWhinney, 2005; Li, Tan and Tzeng, 2005; to name a few). Organizations such as ASHA and Society for Cognitive Development have also organized special symposia in honor of her contributions in the areas of speech, hearing, and developmental sciences. Here I pay tribute to Liz's significant contributions to research on bilingualism and her professional service to our journal.
