I have a new Mac. A MacBook Pro to be precise, and it’s my first intensive use of a mac since Dad brought an Apple 2e home for the weekend in 1982.
It’s great! For example, I was just writing my syllabus and used the word squiz (which I have always spelled squizz and it corrected me, even though I was writing in US English!). OK, so this is minor, and may actually also be true on a PC for all I know, but I think I’m going to be very happy. Moving universities seemed like a good time to switch platforms.
So, what software does any self-respecting linguist mac-user (or mac-user linguist) need?
