I think Professor Hyams is not as bad as other comments here. Although I admit that her lectures can sometimes be boring, her lecture notes are very clear. She is extremely knowledgeable. She is also very passionate about her subject. If you go to her office hours, she will be very patient to tell you everything you confused about. You can't go wrong with one of the legends in the language acquisition theory. (you'll learn a lot more if you do all the readings she posts online)
Fall 2022 - She hid everything about the exam. students didn’t really the answers inside the exam. Most of the questions in the exam are “click all the applies”. If you click one more or less applies, you will get no points on it. The worst design of exam I have ever seen. I feel I have learned nothing in this course. And we don’t even know the score of our final paper. EVERYTHING IS NOT CLEAR IN THIS COURSE! I know there should have other choices for Pure Ling and other majors, you should be better to take others instead!
