Kudos all around!

In the midst of trying to draft a number of individual posts related to student achievements during the past several weeks, I have decided to provide a list of pending announcements here in one message. My apologies to anyone who feels slighted by a group recognition.

Congrats to Joshua Hummel and Christa Rampley!

On Friday, two MA students in the Linguistics Program, Joshua Hummel and Christa Rampley, successfully defended their respective theses. These works (see titles below) both treated issues of lexical variation in contemporary American English.

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!
