My understanding was that most graduate level courses in the History of the
English Language are quite substantive and, although someone may know of an
exception or two, are conducted almost entirely in English, not as a way of
avoiding English itself. But you are the expert in graduate English, do
you have some counterexamples to offer us? Thanks in advance,
