Subject: Gen Ed Linguistics

At our university we are currently undergoing a general education
curriculum reform. My colleagues and I are proposing adding a
linguistics course to satisfy an area studies requirement.

To aid our proposal, information on other programs that require/include
some type of lingistics course in general education (such as intro to human
language, intro to linguistics, language and society, etc.) would be
helpful. I have seen some of this kind of information hit or miss,
here and there, but nothing very exhaustive.

Would LINGUIST list members who know of or participate in programs that
include linguistics of some sort in gen ed curriculums please send
that information to me? Please include not only course name but a
brief description of course and how it fits into the curriculum (eg,
as a social science elective, as part of a thematic cluster, etc.)

I will send a summary to the list.

Hi,

I'm looking for computerized lists of frequent English words (preferably
in the descending order of frequency) or a computerized dictionary of
word frequencies.

If someone could point out to me where to get such lists, I would be very
grateful.

Thank you very much in advance!

Slavonic. Could anyone recommend sources? (Reply to: HusseyDBCVMS.BC.EDU).

 Dear Linguist list netters,

 I am scheduled to teach a graduate-level grammar course on language
 universals and linguistic typology in the Spring. I would appreciate
 your inputs regarding the textbook(s) and other related books and
 articles. Please send mail to <shinja.hwangsil.org>. Thanks.
