Before the switch to remote learning, undergraduate students in LING 300 Studies in Grammar would make the trek from Totem Field Studios to the second floor of Koerner Library to start researching their term project with the help of Susan Atkey, Reference Librarian in the Humanities and Social Science Division. Now, they go online.

Dr. Rose-Marie D├ęchaine, Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics, teaches the LING 300 course twice a year and gives students the option to select their final activity for the course: taking the exam or developing a Wikipedia page on a topic related to syntax, either solo or as part of a small research group.
