Dear LINGUIST List readers,

Our newest valiant hero has joined the Hall of Heroes; we are
proud to announce renowned semanticist Angelika Kratzer as our
newest Linguist of the Day!

What she has written is especially relevant for us as student
editors, and we'd like to share some of it with you here:

"I love being a teacher. I wish my students, both graduates
and undergraduates, knew how much I learn from them. The
graduate students push me to do the research I do. They force
me to go further into a topic than I would possibly manage
on my own. I wish they were paid as well as I am. My
undergraduates teach me what linguistics and semantics is
all about: They insist on clear answers to the big questions.
One of the greatest joys of my career has been to work with
others on how to teach semantics."

Read more of her story here!

Our services are provided and maintained by our students.
Please help us to continue to enrich your work and research
as a linguist:


Warm wishes,
