Linguistics Alumna Defends the Listicle

Listicles
As a contributor for The Week and Mental Floss, Arika Okrent, PhD’04, regularly writes listicles—an article in the form of a list—as part of her job. The listicle has become an increasingly popular literary form both online and in print, and in turn that popularity has created a thriving list of listicle sub-genres: “best of…” or “the worst of…” or “top reasons why…” are just a few examples.
