Witty and self-deprecating, this memoir follows Michaela McGuire as she struggles through a series of odd jobs in search of a career. From overseeing lap dances in a strip club and working in the high rollers’ room at a casino to selling renewable energy door to door and helping to organize a senior partner’s stamp collection at a prestigious law firm, Michaela shares remarkable stories associated with her brief and colorful resume. A unique take on a universal experience, this account also documents her employment with a Member of Parliament’s 2007 election campaign—a job that included advising a Liberal Member of Parliament to campaign for his seat rather than sit for a haircut. Based on a blog, this record is a personal look into the life of a young professional.

The Phonology of Dutch


Author: Geert Booij

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 9780198238690

In this, the first comprehensive survey of the phonological system of Dutch, Geert Booij lays particular stress on the relation between morphology, syntax, and prosodic structure at both word- and sentence-level. His primary aim is to provide an overview of the system as a whole, based in part on a number of more detailed studies of particular aspects of Dutch phonology. As a reference work, the book directs the reader to the available literature. The book is not primarily intended as a contribution to phonological theory; however, it is couched in terms of present-day non-linear generative phonology, and the author's analyses are relevant for a number of current issues in phonological theory such as the principles of syllable structure, the interaction of phonology and morphology, underspecification, rule typology, the domain specification of phonological rules, cliticization, and the role of rhythm in word stress.
