Condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

I’m heartbroken to learn that @GeoffNunberg passed away this morning after an extended illness. He was always a wonderful mentor to me, and a wonderful friend.

This is truly sad, Geoff (Prof @GeoffNunberg) was so brilliant and interesting and also kind, friendly, and approachable. I’m so sad I won’t get to see him passing through South Hall again.

It was a gift to be a colleague of @GeoffNunberg He was as witty, charming, insightful, and badass in person as he was on air.Conversations were exhilarating. I always left w/ new insights & ways of seeing. He was generous & pushed everyone to question & think deeply. What a loss

Sad to hear of Geoff Nunberg’s passing. The way he made linguistics accessible to a broad audience was remarkable, and something I hope more of us can emulate.

Geoff Nunberg gave us The ham sandwich wants his check, a much deeper understanding of idioms and metonymy, and he brought linguistics to millions in his dozens of witty, erudite, enlightening essays delivered in his born-for-radio voice
