The editing faculty have developed a series of slide presentations to help students (and faculty) see how linguistics concepts are applied to key editing tasks. Students often wonder how what they are learning in an introductory linguistics class or grammar class might apply to the real world of editing. These presentations provide a starting place where students can get some answers to those questions. Editing students or those planning to enter the minor are particularly invited to review these presentations.ELANG 223/LING 201 conceptshttp://linguistics.byu.edu/classes/ling580am/ELANG223edit.htmlELANG 325/LING 325 conceptshttp://linguistics.byu.edu/classes/ling580am/ELANG325edit.htmlELANG 410 conceptshttp://linguistics.byu.edu/classes/ling580am/ELANG410edit.html
