Congratulations to Rachel Kim!

Dot-Eum (Rachel) Kim (PhD student, Linguistics Program) successfully defended her first Qualifying Paper today. The paper, entitled "Do you want to be called women or lady?", focuses on "linguistic change with regard to lexical variation--namely, contemporary preference for the use of female reference terms in a variety of contexts." Her committee, including Drs. Chamorro and Renwick, and I were impressed with Rachel's observations concerning what turned out to be quite a complex topic.

Congratulations to her on this important achievement!
