P.hd in English:Research in Tribal and Lesser Known Languages
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 Acquisition of speech and language
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.
s Speech and voice patterns of genetically related people
s Language and evolution
The Centre has been engaged in encouraging field work and research on tribal and lesser known languages of India at the M.A. M. Phil and Ph.D. Levels. Courses have also been designed to provide/develop methodologies for the collection, collation and analysis of linguistic data for the determination of the phonological, morphological and syntactic systems of these languages. The students are thus trained to write at least partial linguistic grammars of these languages.
