HW9 is the last one and isn’t due until Thu 4/25

Since we don’t have a class meeting on Thursday, and I’d like to have at least one more class meeting before homework 9 is due, I’m already going to make the call that the homework that was just given out is due not on Tuesday but rather on Thursday 4/25. That will give us one more class session to go over questions and just try to review what we’ve done. We’ve by now covered most of what I wanted to cover this semester, so if we don’t get to much more new material that’s fine—but I do want to make sure everyone feels mostly comfortable with that material we have covered. So, do have a look at the homework assignment before we meet next on Tue 4/23, but you don’t need to have it ready to hand in by then. Also, I expect to be able to return your previous homework assignments by Tuesday as well.

This also means there will be no homework number 10, homework 9 will be the last one.

HW7 extension

I actually doubt people will notice this before class, given that I haven’t been posting things here to the course blog this semester, but in case you’re reading this in the couple of hours after I post it, I’m extending the due date on homework 7 until Tuesday, so if you’re not done with it (or not happy with what you are done with), don’t worry about it, I won’t collect them until Tuesday.

Homework 0

Here’s the first “homework”, just a couple of demographic questions for you. You can email your answers to me. If I did it right, you can click here to start your email with the questions already there. But the questions are:

What other Linguistics courses (or related courses) have you taken?

What are your (actual or planned) major/minors?

What languages (other than English) do you know, and how well?

What language(s) did you grow up speaking?

Do you prefer to be called something other than what I see in the class list?1

Anything else that seems relevant?


1Within reason, that is. “Your Excellence” is not a valid answer here.
