Subject: Re: Query about Language Concentrations in English Depts.

I have not been following this thread, I'm sorry to say, but Georgia has

its Linguistics Program housed primarily in English, and graduates MA and

PhD students with degrees in Linguistics. English Language is one of the

Ph.D. areas within English proper (not necessarily proper English---that's

for the highbrows), and we regularly graduate students on a "language

track" at the MA level. Undergraduate English majors don't get anything

special for taking several language-oriented courses; undergraduate

Linguistics majors can take both theory and more philological courses.

Regards, Bill
