Advice to job candidates

Do not, as you introduce your job talk, say that your presentation is “part of a larger project” if the larger project to which you refer is a book of essays edited by someone other than you.

Faculty, don’t “professionalize” your students by teaching them phrases like the one quoted above if you do not also teach them their more correct usage.

Axé.
