hi there! i’m going to publish this since i’ve gotten asks about it in the past, and it’ll be nice to have something to link to in the future
i had a really weird start in linguistics – it was a (lucky) combination of starting french i while taking spanish iii (and wondering how and why there are so many similarities), and one of my friends telling me her teacher’s anecdotes about dialectology. that was my junior year of high school, so when undergrad applications rolled around the next year, i applied as a ling major, and when i took my first ling class i knew it was the field for me.
the really important part of looking at linguistics programs (which i didn’t know about and got really lucky in my school choice) is knowing what a school’s concentration/focus is – do they do a lot of sociolinguistics? or psycholinguistics? or generative grammar? are you interested in syntax or semantics? or dialect studies? or language acquisition?
if you figure out which area of linguistics you’re most inclined towards, it’ll looking at schools easier. linguistlist is a really great resource! they have a really cool search function that lets you look at schools by region, subfield, and language specialty. from there you can check out the department’s website (this was my school, for example) and that should have a list of courses and faculty and requirements for the major, etc.
remember that you can always reach out to a school’s ling department – emailing the department head can be super stressful but it can give you some great insight as to what you can expect from their program.
i hope this helps!!

I was hunting down MTV live streams for the season 2 premiere tonight, and I figured I’d share, since I’m sure there are plenty of you who, like me, don’t have MTV or live outside the U.S. (or both) and still want to be able to watch live tonight
and revel in the shirtless merman!Jackson.So, without further ado:
Stream 1 (TVPC.com)
Stream 2 (Nowwatchlive.com)
Stream 3 (EPCTV.com - feeds for both East & West coasts show up on the same page - just pause the bottom player and watch the one on top)
Just a forewarning: I’ve only ever used TVPC to stream something live. It can get a wee bit laggy sometimes, but is generally pretty decent. The others seem to be decent quality, too, though.
Enjoy the new episode, whether you’re watching live or later online and remember: THE SHOW IS A GIFT.
