Linguistics Writing Seminar Spring 2008 Friday 9-11, Dwinelle 1303 GSI: Erin Haynes Introduction Writing a college paper in the field of linguistics can be a challenging experience, and one that is  not often taught explicitly. This informal, optional seminar will introduce you to topics and  techniques helpful for constructing a paper of the quality expected by your instructor. You are  welcome to attend any or all of the seminars; you may find it useful to attend just those seminars  that discuss topics of interest to you. We will meet six times over the course of the semester, with more meetings scheduled towards  the end of the semester when you begin to work on term papers. The first hour will be devoted to  the scheduled topic, followed by an optional hour for workshopping papers you are currently  working on. Peer work is highly encouraged, as this is the primary method by which people at  the PhD level receive feedback. I will also be available to discuss your writing with you, whether  you are at the initial brainstorming stage or revising the final draft.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
