Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Subject: Speech-Language Pathology to Linguistics
Question: Hello! I am a practicing speech-language pathologist obtaining
information for preparation to apply for my PhD. The more I pursue my
interests, the more I find myself led towards the field of Linguistics.
My B.S. and M.S. are both in Communication Sciences and
Disorders. How would pursuing a PhD in Linguistics be different in my
case? Since the two fields do overlap in some aspects, does anyone
have any resources/references I can refer to for further information?
There are so many Linguistics programs I'm unsure where to begin.
Thank you for your assistance.
