Abstract

The brilliant and highly unconventional linguist Keith Foley died of a brain tumour in 2005 at the tragically early age of 53, and this Gedenkschrift contains many touching tributes to Keith's scholarship and to the affection that he inspired in both colleagues and students. It is dedicated to Keith's two sons, Christopher and Stephen, who enthusiastically supported the project.Ten academic papers are included in the volume: eight of them were delivered at a one-day conference held on 27 October 2007 as a tribute to Keith on what would have been his 55th birthday.The contributions closely reflect Keith's wide-ranging interests: in his 'Les Fourberiesde ce calepin', Alan Morris studies puns, wordplay and allusions in the French detective novel; Cédric Moreau's 'Nutmeg and Panenka' discusses the vocabulary of football
