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.
