Winter 2018 - This class is great. Jesse is great. The content is great. The readings are great. Seriously, if you're any kind of Ling major, take this class. He has quizzes every lecture, but he gives you the sheet of questions in the previous lecture, and the answers are either in the lecture/slides or easily accessible in the reading. He drops your two lowest quiz scores, once before the midterm, and once after. There are *weekly* lab assignments, but he also drops the lowest of these. Jesse is super helpful and accessible, and really wants his students to enjoy his class and be able to complete all the work. The workload is not bad at all, and if it's way too much for too many people, he will adjust it. The readings are super engaging, and I personally loved the material. It's interdisciplinary, so I'm never bored (Which is a rarity). Seriously, take this class if you want a fun upper div ling elective, or you're interested in Ling research. 10/10 would recommend.
