Marianne is amazing. Yeah, the material, homeworks and tests are challenging, but she's really helpful at office hours and will make sure you know the material well. Insanely smart, knows everything about every language on earth.

Fairly unforgiving. Can't say I blame her, though.

Prof. Mithun is one of the best in the department. After taking her class, I felt more confident and comfortable with phonology/rule writing. I loved the way she wrote all of the examples/data sets on the board, so you won't get lost with what she is lecturing on! Very enthusiastic energy and passionate. Lots of Extra Credit assignments.

She is simply wonderful. She knows absolutely everything about morphology. Go to class and do the homework and there's no way you can get a bad grade.

Such a rude. If you ask about your grade she gets pissed. No directions on homework, not really nice about giving help on homework. Makes the cutoff for an A above a 90%

She's really hyper during class, but not in a way that helps keep you awake, just in a way that makes you kinda scared. She never gives directions for homework, and she didn't warn you that key terms are on the tests. Write down the terms she mentions in class.

Interesting lecturer. She'll stand there at the board saying "Yeah... Yeah..." and you can tell she's thinking about all this crazy stuff that's over our heads. But then she gets into the real lecture and points out lots of interesting things in a very understandable way. It is mind-boggling how many languages she seems to have studied in depth.
