I'm not surprised... UCLA is the home university for Matt Pearson who got
his Ph.D. there. Matt actually taught a course at Wisconsin in typology by
getting his class to invent jointly an imaginary language. "Invented
Languages" is a course I've been thinking of teaching, too, when I get a
chance, at UR. Professor Jeff Runner (linguistics) and I team-taught an
independent study for our Doug Ball, author of Skerre, who is graduating in
linguistics in a few weeks! Congratulations, Doug!
