  • Quiz #3 and Today's Recording
    The third quiz is scheduled for Thursday, 12 October 2017.

    The quiz will consist of an allophone problem, a problem identifying the distinctive features that determine different groups of sounds, and a problem formalizing rules with distinctive features.

    Due to technical problems, there is no recording of today's lecture.  There is a slideshow (as a pdf protected with the Class Dropbox password) covering what we did in class today, linked here and on the Class Recordings page.
