No.
I do Japanese and Linguistics and I cannot take any floaters.
It's a pity, but that particular course is amazing anyway, so you won't be too sad about it.
It is possible for /some/ other combined courses, but not that many.

You can do floaters in second and third year for joint degrees, but there are some exceptions as mentioned.

(borrowing my friends account here)

Is this quite a popular combination? Ive applied for japanese and linguistic for 2009 entry and slightly worried as i have not heard a reply yet.

It's not particularly popular, but there are some ; I think there are about 3 or 4 of us who do both. But, you'll meet people from straight Japanese and straight Linguistics, so it's probably twice as good in terms of the social-scene - all the cool kids do Linguistics, and there are about 70 Japanese students [that is, students of Japanese] and they're a fairly vocal bunch.
Don't worry about the time it takes to reply, it varies for everyone. You shouldn't be overly concerned until at least February.
