Subject: Graduate Study at Delaware
The Department of Linguistics at the University of Delaware is actively
recruiting graduate students in both theoretical and applied linguistics. The
Department has special strength in syntax, phonology and both first and second
language acquisition. The Department offers excellent financial aid pos-
sibilities. Teaching Assistantships pay about $9500 plus tuition and fellow-
ships are in the same range. The University of Delaware is located in Newark,
DE, which is about an hour from Philadelphia and Baltimore, and about two hours
from New York and Washington.
The primary criterion for admission and financial aid is academic excellence.
The Department requires the GRE and three letters of recommendations. Please
inform your students of this possibility.
For further information, please contact Dr. Irene Vogel, Graduate Advisor,
 Department of Linguistics, University of Delaware, Newark DE 19711, 302-451-68
