If you’re writing a dissertation, what words would make you the happiest to hear?
Ben Shott, in Schott’s Vocab, asks his New York Times readers what are the happiest words in the English language. He suggests something like “I Do” or “The doctor can see you immediately.”
That led me to wonder what are the happiest words for a dissertation writer.
–Let’s just skip the last two chapters. You’ve written enough.
–Great Dissertation. We’d like to offer you a tenure track position.
–No revisions are necessary.
