In the news

Howie Manns and Simon Musgrave are both quoted in a story in the New York Times today. The good news in this piece is that there are exciting jobs available for graduates with a degree in linguistics. (And now picked up by The Age).

Update 27/07/17: This story is hot! Now it has been picked up by The World Today on ABC Radio National. Simon can be heard in this segment, along with Roly Sussex from the University of Queensland.

Howie also published a piece in The Conversation last week on the language of Australian drinking culture. We needed an American to come and explain this for us because all the rest of us here at linguistics are wowsers .
