This course is a survey of current research in areas and issues in Biolinguistics. It also proposes to cover a variety of approaches to language design (as a biological system) and the evolution of language. Some of the major areas of research will be covered in the following sections:

s Cognition and perception studies through different disorders of communication.

s Studies in lateralization and localization of language in brain through imaging techniques.

s Genes and language/speech.

The focus here is on language pedagogy, the concept of pedagogic grammar, contrastive analysis, testing and evaluation, second and foreign language teaching/learning. The other major components of applied linguistics constitute: (1) Translation: Theory and Practice, especially processes and problems of literary translation; (2) Lexicology and Lexicography (especially with reference to the Multilingual, Indian context); (3) Speech and Language Pathology, aphasiology and acquired and/or developmental disorders; Sign language for the Hearing Impaired; and (4) Linguistic analysis of literary texts.
