We are sorry to bring the sad news that Patrick Hanks died on Thursday 1st February. Patrick was a friend, colleague, and mentor to so many of us, and the lexicographic community has lost one of its most distinguished and most admired members. Patrick’s influence on our profession has been profound, indeed almost immeasurable, and he will be greatly missed.
