 LEARN ABOUT LINGUISTICS THIS WINTER SESSION 

During the weeks of January 6-17 I will be offering Introduction to Linguistics (LNGS 23200, CRN: 30023) as an online course. I structure the course content and policies with a lot of flexibility in mind, in order to allow you to work at your own pace and independently. There are live online lectures, but I record and post them on Sakai so you don't need to attend them in real-time if it's not convenient for you. Also, there are no exams or term papers; rather, there are a series of textbook readings and discussion sheets that you must complete and submit to Sakai. Also, the course counts for the old Gen-Ed system as a 3A, LA, or SS; and for the new Integrative Core Curriculum (ICC) it will count as a Humanities perspective in the World of Systems theme.
