The English Linguist and the Real Linguist.
Miller, Mary R.
This paper discusses the roles and responsibilities of the linguist in the English department and also the roles and responsibilities of the English department in relation to the linguist. Discussed are such topics as the exclusivity of some English departments, linguists. grievances against some English departments, linguists' expectations for professional advancement, the teaching conditions imposed by some English departments on linguists, and the difference between conditions imposed on linguists who work in English departments and linguists who work in linguistics departments. It is suggested that English departments review their treatment of linguists and that linguists examine their status within their departments and encourage fair treatment for both literacy and literature professors.
