“For reasons unknown, so many gave their time for so little apparent reward. Hundreds upon hundreds of people, for motives known and unknown, for reasons stated and left unsaid, helped to chronicle the immense complexities of the language that was their own, and dedicated years upon years of labour to a project of which they all, buoyed by some, set of unfathomable and optimistic notions, insisted on becoming a part” S.
