I’m sure that many other working phonologists out there have had the same experience I’ve had: you’re searching the web for some paper or reference — or maybe just surfing — when you stumble upon somebody’s course material on the web. An hour later, you’re bookmarking or downloading like mad, or you’re reading and thinking how you might incorporate this or that in your next course on a similar topic, or whatever.
I’ve been thinking lately about what phonoloblog should be, and one thing I think it should be — aside from the often random discussions of things phonological — is a kind of resource center for working phonologists. And what more useful resource is there than course material? So, here’s the deal: I’m going to start compiling a resource page of course websites. It may take a little while, since I feel compelled to ask permission from each individual, to check how permanent the links may be, etc. In the meantime, please comment on this post with links to your own online phonology course material, if you’re willing to share, and I’ll add them to the resource page. (If you’re at all concerned about the permanence of your course website location, let me know and we can talk about relocating it to this server, on which I have plenty of room.)
If anyone has comments about how the resource page should be organized, that would also be helpful.
