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

The Centre gives importance to research in the complex and varied syntactic and semantic structures of different languages of India. Languages of Dravidian, Indo-Aryan, Tibeto-Burman, Austro-Asiatic (Munda and non-Munda) families have been investigated into. The students are encouraged to work on the models of Generative Semantics, Cognitive Semantics, Generative Syntax, Government and Binding, and Paninian Grammar.
