Subject: Linguistics at Minnesota

As many of you know, the Linguistics Dept. at the Univ. of Minnesota was
closed 2 years ago and new admissions to the graduate program (MA and PhD)
were temporarily suspended. I am very happy to announce that after 2 years
of hard work and negotiations ADMISSIONS TO THE PHD PROGRAM IN LINGUISTICS
HAVE BEEN REOPENED. We have made some changes in our curriculum (mainly
cutting back on courses required of all students), have expanded our
graduate faculty to include linguists and psycholinguists from various
units and have identified 3 main areas of focus:
(1) language acquisition (1st and/or 2nd)
(2) language processing
(3) core linguistics - phonology, syntax, semantics/pragmatics
 especially as these interface with acquisition or processing

We can begin admitting a small number of students (3-5)
for Fall 1994 and we especially welcome applications from
students interested in one of the 3 focus areas mentioned
above.

To all of you who provided support in the past few years,
in the form of letters, advice and general good will,
a very big thank you from all of us.

Jeanette Gundel, Director of Graduate Studies,
Linguistics, Univ. of Minnesota

To respondents whose mail bounced, my posted e-mail address was
wrong (re: "these men and women") and should have been:
 obrstpgate.he.boeing.com
Sorry for the inconvenience.
