Papers in Linguistics - 2013/14

Please note that this list may vary from year to year, with some papers being offered on alternate years only. Full information on the schedule for each paper can be found by following the appropriate links.

Papers in Section D are offered by other University Departments, and entry requirements (e.g. language ability) and teaching arrangements will vary accordingly. If you are considering borrowing one of these papers, we recommend you make contact with the relevant paper coordinator in good time to let them know, check any entry requirements, and find out if there is anything else you should be aware of.

Whilst every effort is made to avoid timetable clashes, some DTAL lectures may clash with papers offered by other Departments. You can check the previous year's timetable to see whether this is likely to be an issue.
