Dear Classreport users:
We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003.
We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a
million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users:
We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same
costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support.
If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would be over in one day. If Classreport is useful
to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you.

Arriving from Albuquerque is a distinguished professor of linguistics—Dr. Joan Bybee—whose academic credits include a Ph.D. from UCLA, an M.A. from San Diego State, A B.A. from UT Austin as well as positions that include Distinguished Professor, Regents Professor, Chair, Associate Dean and Professor. You can keep track of Joan’s prolific academic work on the Amazon book site and her UNM Web page, a windfall of academic publications of which, she promises, “some have colorful covers.” She has served as the President of the Linguistic Society of America, as well as collecting an impressive,37-years worth of grants, fellowships and honors during her years teaching at the University at Buffalo, NY, and the University of New Mexico.
As stated, she is “particularly interested in the cognitive processes that apply when people use language, and how these processes create change in language over long periods of time.” So “Y’all come to Midland, hear?” probably reflects word use over time…say, 50-years? As well as that wonderful outgoing Texas spirit.
Now retired, Joan, continues to write books and articles on linguistics while operating a ranch in central New Mexico, using sustainable principles and producing grass-fed beef. A board member of the Quivira Coalition, she joins conservationist/ranchers based in Santa Fe in restoring range lands and streams.
