Chronologically, but not in terms of LINGUIST years, I am the fourth eldest person at LINGUIST List. After twenty years or so in the manufacturing, mortgage, and mortgage insurance industries, I figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up. And once I'd figured it out, I went down to the university and signed right up. Now, heading into my final undergrad year as a linguistics major at Wayne State University, I am in my second year as The LINGUIST List's Managing Editor. As the M.E., most of what I am responsible for is training and support of our editorial staff, policy making/revision, quality assurance of LL posts, and customer service. If I can be of assistance to you in any of these areas, please feel free to contact me. I'm interested in language variation and change, production and perception, phonology/prosody, orthography, and (insert ∞ here). What's not to like about linguistics?
