Linguist in the…news?


I listened to Saturday’s broadcast of Wait, Wait on the trip to work today, and did a double take (aurally) when I heard that guest Secretary of Energy Steven Chu was playing for “Susan Goldin-Meadow of Chicago, Illinois.” Of course, Prof. Goldin-Meadow’s work on Gesture was the topic of a Wait, Wait limerick back in 2001 (here).

I suppose it could have been another person with the same-sounding name. But then, maybe she’s a language researcher as well.

    Indeed — I heard that too. Seems unlikely that it was someone else, I think. But sadly Steven Chu did not win for her, so there’s no Carl Kasell voicemail message to serve as evidence.
