Professor Aditi Lahiri Honorary Member of the Linguistic Society of America
We are delighted to announce that Professor Aditi Lahiri, the Professor of Linguistics, has been elected an honorary life member of the Linguistic Society of America.
The Linguistic Society of America (LSA) is the major professional society in the USA that is exclusively dedicated to the advancement of the scientific study of language. As such, it plays a critical role in supporting and disseminating linguistic scholarship, as well as facilitating the application of current research to scientific, educational, and social issues concerning language.
Foreign scholars of distinction in linguistic studies, not resident in the USA, may be elected an honorary member by the Society on recommendation of the Executive Committee. Not more than three honorary members are elected in any one year.
The LSA Executive Committee recommended Professor Lahiri as “a remarkable polymath with a strong research profile in five areas: historical and comparative linguistics of Germanic, phonology, phonetics, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics. As noteworthy as the range of this research is its unified conception, which brings together traditional and innovative methodologies into a single research enterprise and vision of contemporary linguistics. She has played an important role in bringing this kind of linguistics to life not just in her own research, but also in her teaching, and especially through her sponsorship of international workshops and seminars over the years
