syntax" and "introduction to phonology" courses. I know that in some
institutions undergraduate majors and first year graduate students
take the same course, while at other institutions a separate course is
offered for each group.

Please reply to: dubinsky@sc.edu

1. For first semester syntax and phonology,

2. If one course is offered, are requirements/grading standards

3. Department name, university name.
