1. Students should get a firm grounding in the structuralist and post-struct-uralist (¿generic generative¿) linguistic analysis of the major issues in Rus¬sian phonology, morphophonemics (= morphonology), and morphology. 2. Students with a stronger linguistic background should gain some appreciation for the possible alternative formal/theoretical approaches to the Russian linguistic issues considered. 3. Students without a linguistic background should start to develop a sense of the flavor of the linguistic description of Russian. 4. Students should get some idea how an economical description of Russian facts may be of some use in practical learning or teaching of the language. Course requirements: Two textbooks, take-home midterm and final, plus one short paper (topic variable, to be determined).
