description & set texts
This course consists of ten sets of lectures of one or two sessions each. These lectures will be given by different members of the department and are based on the areas of their expertise and hence the course provides a wide range of both core and peripheral material within the field of Linguistics.

Kiss Zoltán— Experiment-based research methods in linguistics;
Szigetvári Péter— Distributions, derivations, representations in phonology;
