My major is Undecided. :)
I'm thinking of maybe majoring in Judaic Studies, with possibly also a
minor or 'concentration' in Linguistics. My teacher was telling us
yesterday how Binghamton used to have such a good Linguistics department,
but everyone left so there're very few courses, and the department got
absorbed by the Anthropology department. So i'm not even sure if you can
actually major (or even minor) in Linguistics. Maybe it'll get better by
the time i have to declare a major in my Junior year.
My problem in the class is that i've found that i pretty much understand
already much of what's being taught, because of Conlang, but i don't know
all the terms or a lot of the minutiae of them.
