Linguistics classes are unique among any classes anywhere in the world. In no other University upper-division class could some weird sound be made and immediately half the class tries to mimic it, and have that be acceptable. It doesn’t even seem to matter what the sound is. Today during my phonology/morphology class in addition to trying to mimic the sounds of the random other languages we were studying half the class started making the Windows pop-up sounds and little dings and stuff while our teacher was logging in. Our teacher is pretty hard core and doesn’t take disrespect lightly, but it didn’t even phase him. That’s what we’re trained to do. Definitely weird.
