Weinberg Professor Named Linguistic Society of America Fellow

Janet Pierrehumbert, a current professor of Linguistics and a member of Weinberg College's faculty since 1989, has been elected a Fellow of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA). This prestigious honor is awarded to members of the LSA who have made outstanding contributions to the field, with only a select few elected as Fellows each year.

Pierrehumbert's recent research focuses on the many aspects of language systems, from pronunciation to the words people are able to learn and remember as part of their native languages. Her work has gained attention and funding from organizations such as the National Science Foundation, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, and James S. McDonnell Foundation.

The LSA will hold its annual meeting in January 2012, where Janet Pierrehumbert will be inducted as a Fellow.
