Acknowledgements and Thanks (Mark Halpern)

To my friend Jacques Barzun my debt is so great that if he were to call it in, I would have to declare bankruptcy. He urged me to write this book, gave me detailed comments on various drafts of it as it was written, and supported it in every possible way—all at a time when he was often suffering some degree of disability, and laboring to meet various other obligations. The only anxiety I have about this book is over his opinion of it; if he thinks it worthy of the time and trouble he has spent on it, I will feel fully rewarded for the labor of producing it, whatever the rest of the world may think.
—Mr Halpern, Language and Human Nature, 2006

Mr. Halpern’s book has a Preface by Jacques Barzun.
