2017 Anne Curzan (University of Michigan)

For bringing an interest in language and linguistics to the public through multiple channels, both online and off. Professor Curzan engages the public through lively, personable commentary about language, focusing on issues related to the lexicon, especially slang and other kinds of lexical innovations. She is a regular contributor to The Chronicle of Higher Education's blog Lingua Franca; she is featured weekly on Michigan Radio, a local subsidiary of NPR, in a segment called That's What They Say; and she has a monthly video feature Talking about Words, which appears on Michigan Today, a portal for alumni and friends of the University of Michigan. One of these talks was picked up by TED, and garnered over a million views. Each of these illustrate Professor Curzan's friendly yet dynamic engagement with language change, language use, language history, and the sociopolitical ramifications of linguistic ideology and prescriptivism. Curzan is the author or co-author of several ground-breaking books directly related to making linguistics accessible to the public and one (First Day to Final Grade) which provides critical pedagogical training for graduate students and junior academics, another form of public outreach.
