Make-up take-home exam

I will distribute the make-up exam today in class on paper. Sorry, but I have no digital copies of that, nor will I be able to distribute digital copies of the tasks. The rules are, you will receive this take-home exam today at the end of the class, take it home and submit your written answers latest on next Sunday (27th of November 2011) before midnight electronically as a PDF attachment to an email to my EMICH email address.

The points will be added to and averaged with the points of the mid-term exam. If you do not submit anything, as for the mid-term exam, you stay with the grade you got for it. There is no extension of the deadline for submission, neither a negotiation about other things related to that. This should give you an easy opportunity to improve your grade, giving you 6 days to solve a couple of questions from morphology and phonology.

Do not forget, send me the assignments due today via email as a PDF attachment!

Assignments: in general

In general, assignments are explained at the end of each class session, and also described on the last slide(s) of the slide set of every class. There are assignments for every class. Make sure you look at the slides, if you miss a class. You should not miss a class, and in particular not the last part of the class, when we discuss the assignments.
