Suzy is one of the best instructors I have had at UCLA. She is kind, helpful, and incredibly organized, and makes sure that everyone is following at every step of the class. The class has quizzes each week though, so be sure to go to section since the data presented in the quiz tends to come from practice questions done during section!

She did not have an explicit and consistent late policy. She penalized students for breaking some random formatting rules even when submitting the rough draft. She changed the presentation schedule one day before the presentation and marked students down for not knowing it. Although her lectures were okay (they were clear enough but very boring), she showed deep mistrust toward students and was too arrogant and paranoid to be a professor.

The previous review is pretty spot on. I didn't find the course easy, but Phonology is NOT my subject. I went in completely intimidated and ended up with an A at the end of the course. I had to put in a lot of work (especially for the homework), but he is indeed lenient with the quiz grading.

Save yourself pain, and GO TO OFFICE HOURS! For the final project, anyway. Ask a million questions. Take notes. That saved my group's grade, no doubt.

I took introductory phonology with Professor Hayes and found his teaching style both innovating and instructional. His demeanor makes him easily approachable and his class interesting. Pr. Hayes has an incredible sense of humor, as there was never a class where I didn't laugh out loud at least once. His class was one of the most enjoyable that I have taken at UCLA in the linguistics dept, but I suppose that depends on your aptitude for phonology. I would defiantly recommend taking a class with Professor Hayes if given the opportunity.

Great guy - Terrible instructor. When the class mean on the final is a failing grade the you have a problem. A serious problem. You can work really hard in this class, attend sections, go to office hours, do well on the homework and quizzes and then take his final and fail it. DO not take this class with Schuh if you are really interesting in understanding Phonology.
