South Asia as a Linguistics Area


It is interesting to study the form and function of languages when they are in a situation of interplay in a 'linguistic area'.

As the term indicates, a linguistic area is an area where there are languages that share the boundaries with other languages which are not genealogically related to each other.

I have had similar courses in UT, Austin with Prof. Anthony C. Woodbury and in JNU during my Masters. I have partially covered many relevant topic in Language Typology course in DU and JNU.

However, I am thinking to change the course contents and the reading materials for this course, thus, I thought of coming up with the dedicated page for this course on my website. Hopefully, I should be able to develop this course as one of the core areas for my future teaching in the Centre (provided that I don't quit JNU by availing the VRS in 2023).
