Linguistics for Everyone: An Introduction, 2nd ed. Kristin Denham and Anne Lobeck. Cengage Learning, 2013. Print ISBN: 9781111344382, 1111344388

By Week

Linguistics is a practical study that you learn by both rote and practice. I'm emphasizing practice. This means weekly exercises, and the occasional quiz.

We'll address one chapter Denham and Lobeck each week. Come to class with the chapter read. I may assign an exercise or two from the text to give you practice in the study. We'll use time in class to review the chapter and take on the exercises.

I'll assign an exercise or two each week to evaluate your progression.
