Dr Harris was everything I could want in a university professor: articulate, challenging, fair, and approachable. I studied her demanding courses in English Grammar and delighted in thinking up tough questions -- which she never failed to answer with good humour. Later, she sponsored me in my application to a Master's programme and spoke to my ESL classes on the subject of Canadian English. I will always remember her courtesy and generosity with the deepest gratitude and respect.
