Hey there again!
Since I've quit slothing around, I'll ask a question I've been meaning
to ask for a while here...
Most of y'all have at least a masters, some probably in Linguistics.
1) I have to convince my father that Grad School is worth it... I am
really interested in Linguistics, which would be my choice for
a masters, and perhaps a doctorate degree. However, my father, the
ultimate pragmatist, wants to know what the hell I'd do with the
degree... aside from teach. I said research, but I really couldn't
give him a good answer... Anyone have any ideas?
2) Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I should go? Is there any place
that's inherently (sp?) better that everywhere else?
3) I lied... The truth value of the above statement is false since I only
had two questions, I guess!
Thanks for reading!
