Quarter Taken: Spring 2017 Submitted Nov. 5, 2019 Grade Received: A

Professor Debenport is awesome. There is a lot of reading for this class, but her readings are the only readings I have ever been excited to do. She picks them carefully and they have stuck with me for years (I cited one in another final paper). I truly enjoyed this class, enough to go out of my way to take another class from her. She is fair, honest, funny, and interesting!

This class is easy if you put in the work. Debenport is young, knowledgeable, and passionate, but she is not super experienced as a lecturer. She required that all students put away their phones (mind that we had lectures in Fowler’s large lecture hall) and multiple times throughout the quarter she called people out for whispering during class. As a non-anthro/ling major, I found the material to be a bit tedious. There is a small book required that was only semi-helpful.

Selling "Living Language"(the textbook) at $15! Text 424-522-3141
Professor Debenport is really approachable, easygoing, and professional. Her class is super clear and the study guide she gives guarantees your A+ in the class. As long as you do the reading, attend the lecture, and prepare well with the study guide, you'll get an A+. Topics are pretty interesting, not hard at all. Some readings can be intriguing, but she'll explain and highlight the important points during the lecture so technically you can skip one or two and still get away with it. Really great Professor -- open-minded, lovely, and passionate about her works!
Please buy my book, price definitely negotiable! I've taken this class two years ago and yet I've been carrying this heavy textbook all the time...
