I will remember Dr. Underhill as a brilliant linguist and phonologist. He was my professor of phonology at SDSU, and although it was not an easy class, I learned a great deal from him. Many condolences to his family. Rest in peace Dr. Underhill.

My wife and I are so sorry to learn of Dr. Underhill's passing. He was a brilliant man and a truly gifted teacher, one of my favorite professors at SDSU in 1986 and again in 2002. We had many interesting conversations once he learned how quirky Philippine languages were and declared them a new area of interest.
