MPhil English (Linguistics)

Introduction Rationale Courses Program summary

Rationale of the Program

Pakistan is a diverse multilingual and multicultural country. There are multiple regional languages spoken across the country apart from the national language Urdu and official language English. Some of these languages are documented and codified while others are not. This sort of linguistic diversity and the use of multiple languages alongside each other for different professional and communicative purposes warrant careful language policy and planning. It also provides space for research in the field of language teaching, language documentation and codification, as well as an ample opportunity for linguists to do a comparative and contrastive analysis of the structure of different languages, their functions and interaction in the context of Pakistani society. Hence, the need of degree program designed to study language structure and language use is imperative. In this regard, the MPhil Applied Linguistics program at Department of English Language & Literature is indispensable.
