Joel Spolsky talks about this stuff in his graduates from Java-only schools.

Wow, one-langauge CS departments? I find it appalling that such a program can be accredited. I only _minored_ in CS, and I had courses in some eight different languages. Granted, my Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis course was not as difficult as Spolsky describes, but I certainly was exposed to pointers and recursion in my various other courses. OTOH, purely functional programming per se was rather missing, but then, this was only a minor program, and one supposes that a major program would include it.

"In adjectives, with the addition of inflectional endings, a changeable long vowel (Qamets or Tsere) in an open, propretonic syllable will reduce to Vocal Shewa. This type of change occurs when the open, pretonic syllable of the masculine singular adjective becomes propretonic with the addition of inflectional endings."  — Pratico & Van Pelt, BBHG, p68
