    I’m a graduate student of Linguistics in the US. For my Master’s thesis, I’m conducting a psycholinguistic study on Tagalog. I will be in the Philippines later this month to do my research, and I’m looking for some help with finding a location and some research subjects. I was wondering if you know any linguists or linguistics students who would be willing to help me. Please contact me at walton.linda@gmail.com or lwalton@e-mail.ph for more details.

    Is there a number I can call to ask about slots for Ling 100/102 this second semester of 2010-2011? I really need to cross-register from UP Manila as an irregular student, as it is among the few subjects still available for me to take from my curriculum.
    I will appreciate a prompt response, thank you very much in advance!

      It’s always possible to have the subjects you’ve previously taken credited…I am not sure if there’s any site where you can download the curriculum..the Linguistics Dep’t webpage only shows a list of courses offered by the department…
      Good luck!!

    • linggwistiks said,

      February 5, 2011 at 1:23 am

      Language in general..(most of the examples of language phenomena which you will encounter will probably be in English and other Indo-European languages kasi ito ang mga wikang napag-aralan na ng husto…advanced linguistics in UP encourages research on Philippine languages^^)..sana nakatulong!

      • confused:) said,

        February 6, 2011 at 8:41 pm

        thank you:) yes, it helped. My friend told me that most of the subjects in linguistics are Filipino. Is that true? My friend is planning to change course because of that.

      • linggwistiks said,

        February 8, 2011 at 2:38 pm

        Yes..Most of the courses in BA Linguistics are taught in Filipino. But unless one is a foreigner, I see nothing wrong about it. The Department of Linguistics supports the development of Filipino language and other Philippine languages..

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 12, 2011 at 4:49 pm

      Hi Maricocool…
      You need to have an above average General Weighted Average [GWA] (2.0 or higher to enter UP, and each department has its own GWA requirement)..BA Linguistics I guess requires higher GWA than the general UP requirement. If your GWA qualifies, you will be called for an interview (panel) by the department. Good luck!

    By any chance, alam niyo po ba ang difference/s ng BA Communication Arts sa BA Linguistics? I also need valid and strong reasons po kasi to be able to transfer from UPLB to Diliman. Thank you. 🙂

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 12, 2011 at 5:26 pm

      Sanchan, Communication Arts focuses more on the “performance” of the language. Linguistics focuses more on the “competence” (what’s inside the mind of the native speaker), i.e. the “form” of the language before it is performed. Sana nakatulong!

  13. April 8, 2011 at 8:44 am

    I have been given a study grant by our school (MIndanao State University- Iligan Institute of Technology) to pursue my Ph.D. in Linguistics. Please provide me information about admission requirements and the complete address of the college where I could send my application letter.

    Thank you very much.

    God Bless!

      Hi Maridette! Pagbati sa nakuha mong grant! You may write a letter to the director of the Graduate Program of the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy (at pasensiya kana’t hindi ko na alam kung sino ang nakaupo ngayon)..I suggest you better call the Department of Linguistics (02-926-9887) para mabigyan ka nang tamang impormasyon tungkol dito..Good luck sa panibagong hamon!

    April 11, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Hi. I’m an incoming Senior this school year, and I was planning on taking up BA Linguistics when I enter college, because as far as my knowledge tells me, this course tackles different languages right? And we get to learn different languages as well?

    If not, can someone please tell or explain to me what this course does, because my interests are learning new languages, and I’m not that good in Filipino, and if this is being taught in the Filipino language, then I think I have to switch. Any recommendations for someone like me? Thank you. 😛

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 12, 2011 at 5:46 pm

      Banani, Linguistics is NOT a study of foreign languages. Linguistics is the science of language. It tackles how language works (how we form sounds, words, construct sentences, process meaning etc). The only course in UP that teaches foreign languages is BA European Languages. The Department of Linguistics however houses Asian languages. So if your interest are Asian languages, then you should go to the Linguistics Department. The caveat- you have to take Linguistics courses while majoring in an Asian language.
      This page may answer some of your questions: http://www.lsadc.org/info/ling-faqs-whymajor.cfm

      • banani said,

        April 12, 2011 at 5:57 pm

        Wow, I didn’t really know about THAT. 😀 Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

        Now about Asian languages, I really like Japanese, and I know Basic already, and if I take European Languages I’m guessing I won’t take Asian languages? :DD

        I’m kind of looking for a course that offers to teach diff. languages (languages that I can choose; some of them that I want are Asian and European — so what course is best for that? And if you wouldn’t mind, can you please tell me how those who’ve graduated with the Linguistics and European Languages degree are employed?

        Thank you in advance!

    may i know if applied linguistics is offered as a field of specialization in the Ph.D. program of UP? thanks

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 13, 2011 at 1:20 pm

      Hi Marigrace. The PhD program in linguistics at UP is basically theoretical. The program however covers a few areas in applied linguistics which you might wish to explore. These include Lexicography and Sociolinguistics (in the Philippines). The UP College of Education would be also be a good choice if you’re planning to specialize on Language Education. Good luck!

  16. Christian said,

    April 14, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    Good day! I am an incoming freshman in UP Diliman this academic semester and will be taking up BA Linguistics. We have just started online preenlisment in the UP CRS although I have not yet seen the curriculum for BA Linguistics students. However, the CRS has already provided me with different clusters/domains (AH, MST, Lang) from where I will choose my subjects.

    We all know that every UP student is required to take 15 units of GE subjects from each of the three domains (AH, MST, SSP) totaling to 45 units but as indicated, I am not allowed to take a subject under the SSP domain (though I am required to take Lingg 110 but this is not a GE subject).

    First semester lang po ba ito? Next sem po ba, makakapag-take na ako ng subject under the SSP domain? And where can I get a copy of the curriculum? Thank you po.

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 15, 2011 at 8:24 pm

      Christian, welcome to the UP Department of Linguistics! I don’t remember any rule that bars a freshie from taking a GE course under his/her home domain, in your case SSP. But there could be such rule though, or they could have made one, probably to ensure that you’ll get to finish all your GEs from the two other domains before you enter your 3rd or 4th year. The rationale behind this could be the fact that it’s normally difficult to get a slot in GE courses under MST and AH domains (and it would be easy for you to get one from among the GE courses offered by SSP, since it’s your home domain)..This is just my assumption and you may want to inquire more on this during your consultation with your adviser.

      You may obtain a copy of the curriculum from the Department of Linguistics office, FC2112…
      Good luck and see you in UP (soon^^)…

      • Christian said,

        April 16, 2011 at 7:50 pm

        Thank you so much po for answering my concerns. I have just seen the curriculum although I still haven’t met my adviser. We are scheduled po kasi to meet him/her on May 3.

        And as you have indicated po down there, ganito nga po ang registered courses list:
        Linguistics 110- 3 units
        GE 1 (AH)- 3 units
        GE 2 (MST)- 3 units
        Language 1&2- 6 units

        So siguro itatanong ko na nga lang po sa adviser ko kung bakit po walang SSP 😀

        And I have another question po pala. Sabi po kasi sa curriculum, isa sa mga retention policies is to “Maintain a departmental cumulative GWA on Lingg. 110 and 115 — 1.75 or better” What does this mean po? Thanks!

    Hi sir, a little help would be appreciated. I’m an upcoming college student. I’m 4th year HS now. I would like to know all about Linguistics ’cause actually the said course would be my course.

    Here are some of my questions, please answer them all.
    1. When you say program/course “linguistics”, is it the course itself or it has many branches? Can you give ’em all. And do you need to choose?
    2. In linguistics, in UP Diliman to be specific. Do they offer some other languages as a part of Linguistics. I mean do you study OTHER languages in linguistics? And such as?
    3. Is it a 4 years course or what?

    Tnx Sir. I’m looking forward for your answers. God Bless.

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 15, 2011 at 8:50 pm

      Mint, hi! So you’ve passed the UPCAT and your major is Linguistics? Wow, that’s pretty much an accomplishment..congratulations!
      Now, with regard to your questions, just a little more browsing and you would find detailed answers for no.1. I suggest you check out this link:
      For no. 2, yes. There are three plans in BA Linguistics. Plan C is Linguistics and East Asian languages (which would mean you have to study Japanese while studying Linguistics), Plan B is Linguistics and Southeast Asian Languages (Bahasa Indonesia-Malaysia). In both these plans you have to be proficient in Japanese (Plan C) or Bahasa Indonesia-Malaysia (Plan C) at least before you graduate. Now, Plan A is a bit different. Here, you don’t have any language concentration. Instead, you have more linguistics courses and the language requirement is at least two foreign languages. If you choose Plan A, you need to complete 4 courses(12 units) of the first foreign language you will be choosing and 2 courses (6 units) of the second foreign language. The good thing is, you might want to take more courses in any of these two languages if you decide to make any of them your cognate course (which at the maximum gives you another 12 units).
      I’ll give you an example of the Plan A language scenario. Assuming you have chosen Spanish as your 1st foreign language, then you take four courses of Spanish. And then let’s assume you have picked Japanese as your second foreign language, then you need to take two courses of this one. For your cognate (a 12-unit requirement of social science areas, or any foreign language), you may want to take four more Spanish courses, and register Spanish as your cognate, and the same possibility goes to Japanese, if you want to take more courses in the latter. Or, if you prefer more diversity in your language background, you may want to choose another language, say for example Portuguese, for your cognate (which would give you 12 units of Spanish, 6 units of Japanese and 12 units of Portuguese).
      Linguistics is a four-year course, unless you venture into a one-year exchange study program (most probably in Japan or Korea) which most of our majors do. Exchange programs normally last one-year, and this would cause you at least one year delay in your undergraduate program in UP.
      I hope I’ve answered your queries. Good luck!

        LOL. Tnx for a quick reply. Didn’t expect that. ^^. Just wanna clear about what you said. Regarding about the UPCAT. It seems like you were shocked that I passed that thing. Is it hard to pass UPCAT and does it have any requirements to choose linguistics?

  18. Mint Zillion said,

    April 15, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Just to add, what is the passing grade for UPCAT Linguistics?

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 16, 2011 at 11:28 am

      Mint, perhaps I need not explain more why passing the UPCAT is enough of an accomplishment…I’ll leave it to you to realize it yourself..You may want to check out this link though, as it features some “less known” information about the UPCAT:
      There is no passing grade for Linguistics. There is a cut-off grade however for UP Diliman. And Diliman (as well as Manila) happens to have the highest cut-off grade among UP campuses (only around 3,500 gets into Diliman out of the 70,000+ examinees every year)..
      Again, welcome to UP!

    April 15, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    hi sir. i just needed some help. what subjects should i take to help me more in my major which is linguistics? I am an incoming freshmen this academic sem and I’m still confused. Is it better to take basic college english first or is it alright if i take the college english already:) and who is a better professor for that?
    as said above, we have just started the online pre-enlisment and I have not yet seen also the curriculum for BA Linguistics. thank you in advance:)

    • linggwistiks said,

      April 16, 2011 at 11:57 am

      Hi there! Haven’t you met your program adviser yet? I suggest you drop by the Department of Linguistics as soon as possible to at least know who your adviser is, and when is the possible time to meet him/her. Nonetheless, I’ll try to answer your question, but just would like to emphasize that YOU STILL NEED TO MEET YOUR ADVISER to consult about this matter. First, as a linguistics freshie, you need to take Linguistics 110, which is the introductory course to linguistics (make sure you register in the class made available FOR MAJORS ONLY). And following the GE requirement, I suggest you choose two GE courses (one from AH and one from MST domain). Have you chosen which among the 3 plans in BA Linguistics are you going to pursue? If you’ve chosen plan A, then I suggest to register in an integrated course of your first language choice (e.g. Spanish 10-11 [6 units] if you’ve chosen Spanish). if you are in Plan B, then you MUST register in Bahasa Indonesia-Malaysia 10-11. And if you’re in Plan C, then you MUST take Japanese 10-11.

      In short, this is how your registered courses’ list should look like:

      Linguistics 110- 3 units
      GE 1 (AH)- 3 units
      GE 2 (MST)- 3 units
      Language 1&2- 6 units

      It is always advised to have your number of units limited to 15 during your first semester, since you would probably need time to adjust with the UP’s academic environment. And you don’t need to take English course to be able to excel in Linguistics. I mean, I don’t see it as a big help. In linguistics, you will learn the language (and normally, examples are in English) the scientific way, which would later give you an enormous advantage over people who have learned languages pedagogically.

      Good luck!

      • i don't know said,

        April 16, 2011 at 2:37 pm

        i haven’t met my program adviser yet, since i’m too far from diliman but i will try to drop by. By the way, In the the 3 plans of BA linguistics, I think I will pursue plan C.

        thank you for answering my questions. It really helped me a lot:) I think I just have a lot of questions in my mind due to nervousness:)Again, thank you very much.

      You may take regular language courses as a special student..There might be some limit on the number of units you would be allowed to take (please inquire at the Office of University Registrar)..Certificates are awarded to those who would successfully complete an extramural class module (but one module is only 30 hrs-10 Saturdays)…

    Hi, I will be shifting to BA Linguistics, what should I expect? also, I heard that most of the courses are taught in Filipino. Does it mean that the paperworks and other requirements for the classes must also be written in Filipino?

    • linggwistiks said,

      May 31, 2011 at 12:21 am

      Kate, it really depends on the professor who will be handling the course..it’s true though that the department advocates the use of Filipino language as the medium of instruction..What should you expect? Linguistics readings are normally more difficult to grasp than the readings in other social sciences, so expect that there would be plenty of cases when you would actually need to read the assigned reading more than once…

    Hello, I am currently an undergraduate of SLIS in UP. When I took up Lingg 110 last semester I really had fun so next sem I’m planning to take up another linguistics subject and then after graduating from LIS I am thinking of pursuing an M.A. in Linguistics. Is this possible even if I am not a Linguistics undergraduate? And my other problem would be I had really bad grades during my early years in college (that’s why I was forced to shift out from my first course) so it greatly affects my GWA even if lately I’m starting to have good grades.

    • linggwistiks said,

      June 12, 2011 at 9:28 am

      Anne, kapag Plan A ang kukunin mo, definitely puwedeng Japanese ang foreign language 1 mo (pero hanggang 12 units lang ang Foreign Language 1), then Korean ang Foreign Language 2 mo (6 units lang). TIP: ang gawin mo, imbes na kumuha ka ng ibang social science course para sa cognate mo (na 12 units din), gawin mong language din ang cognate mo at ituloy mo ang Japanese (puwede hanggang 24 units) dahil wala pang advanced courses sa Korean. But if you really like Japanese, you better do Plan C!

      Good luck sa UPCAT!

      Hi! You may want to try the extramural classes offered by the Dep’t. of Linguistics (on Asian languages)–information about this is available on this page http://extraclasses.tk/
      Please inquire at the Department of European Languages if you’re interested in Spanish (and other European languages). Good luck!

    Hello! I am Dan and currently on my thesis work about, “The Impacts of Mother Tongue on Students Grammatical Competence in English’, can you give me researches quite similar to this one or just details of those researches specially so there in UP in the Linguistics Department. Thank you! You can contact me by my email officialdanmandia@yahoo.com
    God bless you!

      Dan! I wonder if I was able to reply to this inquiry of yours before—if not, please forgive me for this super late response…You may browse the UP WEB OPAC–go to the UP website, then click library and use the search option. I also suggest you utilize foreign academic journals through JSTOR or EBSCO–this topic is “applied linguistics” and I am not knowledgeable of any similar research conducted in the Philippines..

      RC, non-UP students may take language courses in UP as a “special student”–there might be some limitations on the number of units you could take though..for more info, please contact the UP registrar’s office (call UP trunkline, then ask to be connected to UP Office of University Registrar). Good luck!

      RC, para sa akin, medyo lang–nahirapan ako sa language ability part (which is kinda ironic to think that am in linguistics now^^)…

      Mina, you mean you are a graduating college student? or high school student? The latter requires you to pass UPCAT..the former doesn’t, provided that your undergraduate GWA is within the cut-off, and that you pass all other additional requirements—such as interview^^ Good luck!

    Hi! I’m a graduating Teacher Education student with a specialization in English and I am considering all other options that will lead me into studying in UP. I wonder if the Masters program of Linguistics require a bachelor’s degree in Linguistics or do they accept graduates from a different field?

      Hi Daniel! You may apply for MA Linguistics program even if your BA is not Linguistics.

    Hi, ano po ang kaibahan ng Integrated Language class with 6 units (?) and normal class with 3 units only. Can I take either of them as a language elective as advise sa akin as an alternate course?

    • linggwistiks said,

      November 4, 2011 at 11:07 am

      Paul, the integrated 6-unit language course is an 4-day a week class (6 hours a week)– so it’s like taking two regular language courses (10-11) in just one semester. Yes of course, but you need to consider the fact that it’s a 6-unit course (equivalent to two courses)..

  38. Paul Refani said,

    November 3, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    Uhm, sorry about this other question but, if we are going to do Eprerog for language electives, are we going to the Dept. of Linguistics or the Dept. of European Languages?

    • linggwistiks said,

      November 4, 2011 at 11:08 am

      For Asian languages, proceed to the Department of Linguistics. For European Languages, you should go to the European Languages Department. Good luck!

    Hi, I would just like to know how different is the language proficiency requirement of the Asian Studies MA at the Asian Center from the language requirements of the MA Linguistics degree? I am very interested on these two programs. Also, I don’t have a BA in Linguistics. How much of a disadvantage can that be? Thank you very much.

    • linggwistiks said,

      Hi Raymond! I’m really sorry I couldnt provide you info about the Asian Center’s graduate program. MA Linguistics requires you to be proficient in a language other than your native tongue and the official languages of PHL..but you are only required to take the proficiency test after doing all your coursework..Doinv MA Linguistics without any linguistic background could be hard but the program offers a separate intensive introductory course for students like you..

        Thank you very much for taking time to answer all our questions! God bless.. .
