Dear Subscribers,

Who doesn't like good food???!!! Let's congratulate
the LinguistList crew for coming up with an imaginative
theme we can all relate to - our pleasure (at least for
some of us) in preparing interesting recipes, in eating
well, and in enjoying the company of others as we do.
I love to cook - either by myself or with my husband -
and love to eat, and enjoy both these activities all the
more in good company.

It occurs to me that doing linguistics is similar to
cooking and eating in more ways than the essential orality
of both of them. We do linguistics as we cook (most of us
at least), alone or with a collaborator or two. Except in
certain subfields, we don't work in large teams (and we
can even liken that kind of research and teaching to
cooking professionally in a restaurant, say, or a banquet
hall). Love of language and figuring out how it works is
what drew us to the field and, judging by the noise level
at conferences, we do enjoy talking!!

The good company I mentioned above comes in many ways in
linguistics. If we are lucky, we have our colleagues in
departments and programs with whom to discuss research and
teaching. We go to conferences and meet scholars from many
parts of the world. And, for the last decade and a half
more or less, we meet on-line - where better than at the
LinguistList, a source of new information, new ideas, and
new colleagues?

One more parallel: like good restaurants, the LinguistList
cannot survive without support - we enjoy the nourishment
and companionship we get from it, but there is a bill.
And now is the time to pay up, by making a contribution at
Again like restaurants, the LinguistList has learned to
depend on its regulars, but cannot manage without new-comers
too. So, if you have given before, welcome back, and if you
haven't, don't forget to pay for this very wonderful
(intellectual) food and company.

Thank you and bon app�tit!

Marianne Mithun is our newest chef de Cuisine of the Day! 
Go on and sneak peak a bit of her story on how she got
into linguistics:

" Probably two kinds of things have shaped me most as a
linguist: the languages and their speakers who've crossed
my path, most often by happy accident, and colleagues with
ideas for intriguing new directions to think about.

But to start at the beginning, the chains of events that
set me on a path toward linguistics were probably much like
those of many of the rest of us. It was thrilling to me,
as a young lyc�enne in France, to muse about how different
the world looked from the vantage points of different
languages learned in separate contexts, even languages as
similar as French and English ..."

Go to the Chef de Cuisine of the Day part of the Fund Drive
site to read more about Mithun's story.
