15 hours down 9 more to go (paca)
Woo-hoo! Over half way done with the old Prelim exams. It's not completely clear what they are prelim too, since I only have a semester or two more of classes. There's another nasty test before the dissertation - the comprehensives - so it's all very unclear. Actually, amusingly, the comprehensives are a detailed test on 3 topics of my choosing, while the prelims are about almost anything having to do with linguistics. I think we all need to go look up these words again. The prelims aren't very preliminary and the comps aren't very comprehensive. And we study linguistics?
