Probably the best subject I've taken this year. An excellent introduction to linguistics. The lectures are very helpful and interesting, the manual contains a bunch of useful and genuinely fun exercises, the textbook is a good read, and the tutorials were so great I didn't care one bit that I had to stay until 6:15. My tutor was charismatic, unabashedly geeky and incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about linguistics. The exercises we did in the tutorial were gratifying and enriching, working with the other students and sharing our collective insight was great, and the environment was generally enthusiastic. The exercises give you all the satisfaction of an algebra problem, without all the crippling anxiety of arithmetic (perfect for an Arts student like me). My only criticism is that the tutorials didn't go for long enough. I wouldn't have gladly stayed another hour for everything I got out of them. I would highly recommend this subject, especially if you enjoy languages or mathematics.Anonymous, Semester 2, 2017
Excellent subject for anyone with an interest in linguistics or anyone just wanting to know what it's all about. Clearly and concisely introduces all the elements of linguistic study while providing students with reasonable course work and assessments with which to apply this knowledge and cement their understanding.Anonymous, Semester 2, 2015
Really interesting introduction to linguistics. All lecturers were really good, and lecture material clear and concise. Assignments were actually enjoyable and not too time consuming, and tutorial exercises definitely complemented the lecture material well. Highly recommend!Anonymous, Semester 2, 2015
