Ken Pike Joins Second Session of Summer Courses

Among the five students who attended the second session of the Summer Institute of Linguistics was Kenneth L. Pike (far right). 

Language development among the speakers of the Mixtec language in Oaxaca, Mexico, would later spark Pike's interest in phonology and tonal systems, leading to his life-long work in linguistics and the study of language in the context of human behavior.
