The first thing to recognize is that what we think of as "new" usage is very often not that new at all, thanks to what Stanford linguist Arnold Zwicky has called The Recency Illusion.
2008-02-11: GLBT Professionals to Receive NOGLSTP Awards Recognizing Their Contributions to the Fields of Science and Technology » NOGLSTP, 11 Feb 2008 [cached]
We are pleased to announce the 2008 NOGLSTP Recognition Awards recipients: Arnold M. Zwicky (GLBT Scientist of the Year), Michael J. Steinberg (GLBT Engineer of the Year), and Michael Falk (GLBTA Educator of the Year).
Arnold Zwicky, Ph.D.
Dr. Arnold Zwicky has been chosen to receive the NOGLSTP 2008 GLBT Scientist of the Year Award because of his outstanding achievements in the field of linguistics. Arnold Zwicky has authored over 120 professional publications in his long and distinguished career. His research centers on the theory of syntax and word structure; variation in syntax; and the advice literature on grammar, style, and usage. His entire life has been dedicated to the detailed study of language, and to the principle that the details matter-the aim of science is not lofty grand principles of uncertain precision but rather close analysis of fine-grained patterns of facts. His training began in pure mathematics and Sanskrit, the classical language of ancient India, and continues in the quest of a quintessentially scientific attitude to the phenomenon of human linguistic communication in all its complexity and variety.
As an openly gay linguist in academia and science, Dr. Zwicky has been an excellent role model for his students and colleagues. Dr. Zwicky is currently a Visiting Professor of Linguistics, Stanford University and a Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Linguistics, Ohio State University. Dr. Zwicky received an A.B. in mathematics from Princton University, magna cum laude (1962) and his Ph.D. in linguistics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1965). After teaching four years at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, he taught at Ohio State University and was named a Distinguished University Professor in 1989, retiring in 1995. Since 1985, Zwicky has been a visiting professor at Stanford University. He has been active in the Linguistic Society of America (LSA president, 1992) and has taught or worked on research projects at many of the Linguistic Institutes of the LSA, from 1968 through 2007. He held the Sapir Professorship at the 1999 Institute, at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. His many honors and awards include: Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1992); Fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (1998); Fellow Linguistic Society of America (2006), and Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science (2007). He has held Fellowships at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (Stanford U. 1981) and the Stanford Humanities Center (2005-6), University of Edinburgh, University of Sussex (Fulbright research professorship), and the Beijing Language Institute, Guggenheim Fellowship (1972), Distinguished Scholar Award (OSU 1987), OSU Exemplary Faculty Award (1994).
Dr. Zwicky's work has included mentoring other LGBT academics; supporting the LGBT linguistics community by founding, publicizing, participating in OUTIL, the Out in Linguistics mailing list, and publishing articles on language usage in the popular gay press. He is a past board member of NOGLSTP.
