He earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Yale University (1951) and a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of California, Berkeley (1957). His doctoral dissertation was a grammar of the Mono language based on fieldwork conducted around North Fork, California in the summers of 1953 and 1954. He was a Professor of Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley from 1958-1964 and Yale University from 1968-1977. He left academia to work in the computer industry from 1977-1981, but subsequently joined the faculty of the Department of Linguistics at Rice University, where he has spent the remainder of his academic career.
