But can you have friends who think you are worth less as a person than they are? Or is that a misrepresentation of what members of the KK feel about people who aren't white.

The way we learn our native language is very subconscious. As an infant no one teaches you grammar rules, but somehow in hearing language you learn to speak in a way that conforms with every one else's. In other words, while you speak, you are not consciously applying the rules. So when you invent a language how much thought goes into what those rules should be. What rules are common across languages? Thanks for helping to bring ASOIAF to life!

Hi Dr. Kelsky. I gained lots of teaching experience in grad school moonlighting at a for profit college. I thought this experience would benefit me as I apply for TT positions at SLACs, but I am beginning to suspect it is having the opposite effect. What are your thoughts?

Thanks. I have adjunct experience at a legit uni also. Is there a way to spin the for-profit experience, or should I minimize/erase all mention of it?
