We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

 Phonology Theory Survey for Teachers

 This is a survey of how phonological theory is taught and learned
 in introductory courses, including graduate level Phonology I and II.
 I have been investigating the most common conceptual difficulties for
 students of phonology and would appreciate your help. You need not
 have taught it recently to answer the survey. Summary posted with
 sufficient response.

 Thanks in advance,
 Beaumont Brush
