Anyone have any ideas? Do you have web access? If so, go to and look at the job ads. At least several of them are for non-teaching jobs in linguistics. > 2) Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I should go?

Do you know yet which branch of linguistics you're most interested in? That could make a difference in your choice of where to go. Again, the web might be useful to you. You can get some ideas of what's going on at different places by looking at their web pages. And, of course, you can look at books and articles and see where the people are who are publishing the kinds of work you're interested in. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
