Fall 2006: Intro to Syntax
I knew on the first day that this class would be alright, because the professor looks just like Ricky Gervais. I like him well enough, but this class is basically diagramming sentences. Remember doing that? And aren't you glad you did? I bet you would never be where you are today without that crucial skill.
Here are some notable quotes from him so far:
"I am a dataset. You are a dataset."
"English and Japanese are the exact same language, except with different words and different structure."
"A big German man lives in the house at the end of the street."
"Who do you wonder what where went?"
