I agree in part. The word "load" adds little as far as I can tell except a signal that the loaded party is whining about teaching. But, I think "opportunity" is Newspeak. Why not generally say something bland and specific, such as "She teaches 12 credits and 1000 students." Add whining or cooing separately. Like it or not (and I love it), it's still work.

It never occurred to me that "teaching load" carries a negative connotation.

First, I can't imagine that a full load at *Princeton* is that onerous. Second, I think the word needn't carry a negative connotation, though, particularly for those of us inured to its usage.

James Grimmelmann

You said it best: they're teaching "responsibilities."
