Comment:
I took Hitay's class 14 years ago and recently sat in on a current lecture. Her style hasn't changed. As ever her lectures will grip your attention. So, pay attention and be willing to put in the work! As another rather said: she won't put up with stupidity. Review previous classes' notes before new lecture, and read assigned materials before class

Comment:
She's very good at being clear in her lectures and she definitely knows what she's talking about. There's always work to do, but it doesn't really pile up. If you need help, I would ask a TA before asking her, but she's also willing to clarify anything ever. I really enjoyed this course!

Hitay is hilarious. She has very entertaining lectures. You can't miss class either because she sometimes doesn't follow the book. And sometimes the quizzes are by surprise.

Hitay changes up this course every year, but this year all we did were group presentations on each chapter of the textbook and a massive final paper. The group assignments were graded extremely fairly (I never got lower than an 82.5%). Hitay was very helpful in explaining complex concepts and offered to proof read my final paper before submission.

Hitay is an awesome prof. She's a tiny little Turkish lady and still manages to intimidate her first year class. Sit up front so you can hear her better, her accent is subtle but it helps if you sit close. Don't miss class because there are NO lecture notes online (she's too old-fashioned for that). Linguistics is amazing, and I highly recommend it

Loved the structure of the class in both Ling 100 and Morphology. Straight-forward explanation of concepts, lots of in-class practice and discussion, relevant application through assignments, mixed with a colourful and admirable prof, and you have the formula for a perfect class. Linguistics with Hitay was the highlight of my time at Queen's.

She is a truly unique prof with a great big heart. Course was fun and surprisingly science-like in nature. The most analytical parts are straightforward if you've done math proofs before, but arts majors could definitely struggle.

extremely difficult class if you're not used to being super analytical, but hitay herself is hilarious! she has a thick accent so it's not that easy to understand her, and with difficult course material this can be a challenge, but as a person she's great and very funny

One of my favourite professors! Diabolical assignments and tests, but only because they actually challenge you to think hard and apply your knowledge, rather than memorize like many other courses. Hilarious and engaging lecturer, loved this course and her so much!

DIFFICULT, but it IS worth it if you apply yourself. Hitay is terribly intimidating but not to worry as she is "no bite" under her awesome yet crazy style and Turkish bracelets. Love her and what she has to offer, just pay attention! She will see you are trying your best.

Funny and entertaining, but not necessarily a good teacher. Marks pretty hard and it can be difficult to tell what she's saying (no mic + accent). The course turned me off linguistics.

Definitely an interesting prof... she made some odd jokes and swore a lot, which was enough to make me pay attention, but she wasn't particularly clear about the content. I would have liked to see her point out required features of the different types of analysis before handing out assignments. Love the outline of the class/marking, though!

BEST PROF I EVER. Seriously, if I didn't have her as a teacher I don't know what I would do. She's anal about little details but you're answers are either right or wrong so she's not even that tough of a marker. TAKE HER CLASS YOU WON'T BE SORRY. (note, don't miss ANY lectures or you'll fall behind) - you won't want to miss them either! ilovehitay!

I'll admit, I was terrified of Hitay at first. She swears a lot, makes fun of people who ask questions, and generally gives the class a hard time. That being said, Hitay turned LING into my favourite class of the year. Assignments are manageable, there's not a lot of reading, and although the tests are brutal, your lowest test mark is dropped.

She's fun, entertaining and a bit hard-hitting at first but once you get used to her you will love her! You're gonna be sad to say those goodbyes! Unfortunately, doesn't really wait for you to catch up sometimes and rushes ahead, with or without you! Doesn't explain tings too well either. Still love her and this class <3

Wonderful, funny and keeps the lectures interesting. The work is difficult unless you're willing to put in the time, but it is very worth it because Ling is super cool. She randomly starts cursing in class but not in an offensive way. Thumbs UP
