Lexicon lover

How did you decide you were
interested in linguistics?
I was hooked about two weeks
into my first course in linguistics
when I was a first-year student in
1985. I had intended to pursue a
path in translation and one of the
requirements of that program was
an introductory linguistics class.
As corny as this sounds, it was
really like finally arriving at the
place I'd been looking for. Once I
declared my major concentration
in linguistics, I've never wavered
in my passion for it.
What is the most rewarding.
part aboutbeing a professor?
I really like almost all aspects
of being a professor, except
maybe e-mail, but I especially

like those aspects that intertwine
working with students and work-
ing on a specific research project.
I find it intellectually stimulat-
ing to interact with students, and
especially to find ways to engage
mutually on working out puzzles,
conundrums and challenges. I
love it when students are par-
ticipating; challenging me or the
texts or data we're working with
and coming up with new ideas
and directions for further explo-
Are you involved in any type of
research or projects affiliated
with the University to further
your linguistics studies?
I'm currently working on
a book about language varia-

tion as it occurs in the mass
media, particularly the fictional
mass media, like television and
film. This is an area that I have
worked in on-and-off since I was
a graduate student, so I decided
it would be good to pull all the
various strands and interests I
have in this topic together into a
book. I've also been involved in
different kinds of collaborative
projects with colleagues in psy-
chology and political science. I
am just starting a project about
people who work with dogs to
herd sheep that I'll jump into
fully once the book project on the
mass media is finished about a
year from now.

Mary, it celebrates excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. The UM chapter, Alpha of Michigan, was founded in 1907 and inducted its hundred
and fourth class into membership on April 1, 2012. An invitation to join Phi Beta Kappa requires a history of impecable academic performance that
reflects not only grades but breadth and depth of intellectual engagement. Membership as a junior requires an almost perfect record. The Executive
Committee of the Alpha of Michigan Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa recognizes and congratulates the new members of this venerable society.
