There will be three exams, including the final. The final is not comprehensive.
There will be numerous homework exercises. Homework receives a pass/ fail grade depending on whether it is complete or not. (Here is your chance to get an A for effort!) You will normally check your own homework answers in class.
Your semester-long project will result in an analysis of the speech of a non-native English speaker. You will receive separate handouts explaining requirements for the project and exams.
Course Description: (3 credit hours. No prerequisites) General overview of the history, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and discourse of English with emphasis on applications, including first- and second-language acquisition.
