    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    A good survey course for someone interested in linguistics more generally/considering a major or concentration

    Course highlights:

    Language acquisition was the highlight for me. It's incredibly interesting and kept me engaged. Learning the science behind grammar was interesting as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to remember earlier units, since oftentimes they build (especially with syntax, phonetics and phonology)

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would certainly recommend this class to any student but particularly for those with a love of language. This course gives a brief overview of the multitude of areas in the Linguistic field. Although you may not like each section equally they are all fascinating and help to build on one another to allow you to better understand language as a whole. After taking this course I decided upon linguistics as my major and certainly don't regret it!

    Course highlights:

    Over the semester you briefly cover several different areas that are major parts of linguistics. These included phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax, historical linguistics, social linguistics, child language development, and language disorders. The class covers a very wide range of topics which allows you to get a taste for many different things. My personal favorite subjects were syntax and child language acquisition.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will not succeed without going to lecture. Although attendance is required you need to be engaged and aware in order to make the grade. The material is going to be new for most people and there is an extensive amount of memorization. If you start off strong though you build a base of knowledge for the rest of the class and you won't have to re-memorize so many things

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Interesting class, but the TA's are tyrannical graders. Only take this class if you enjoy linguistics.

    Course highlights:

    IPA and phonetics part is really, REALLY hard!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're here just to get a sociology credit, take sociology and not this.
