Language, education and communication are some important areas of my academic interest. I have published quite a few articles on these subjects and have also presented papers in seminars and conferences. In the present volume, I have made an effort to compile revised versions of some of my papers published earlier and also included some papers which have not been published so far. I have also included two papers co-authored by me with Dr. L.Devaki published earlier.
I would like to thank the editors and publishers of various journals and volumes for permitting to re-print some of my earlier papers as chapters in this book. Papers published earlier are mentioned in references at the end of the book.
I take this opportunity to thank my former colleagues and friends who have provided their comments on some of the papers. I would like to thank Prof. S. Imtiaz Hasnain for going through the manuscript and for offering his useful suggestions. I would like to thank colleagues and staff of the IILS for their assistance in publishing this book. I hope the book would be of interest to students, teachers and researchers in the areas related to language, education and communication.Omkar N. Koul
