Thirsty Linguist brings you news from cognitive science laboratories, reviews of recent books on the mind and brain, and observations about linguistics in literature and everyday life. The writer for Thirsty Linguist is Anne Pycha. I teach linguistics at University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I earned my Ph.D in 2008 from the fabulous folks at University of California, Berkeley.

My clip  art usually comes from the University of South Florida. I welcome your comments: anne@thirstylinguist.com
