My Papers

I wrote these papers while pursuing a master's in English with empahsis on general linguistics in India . Some of them are recent, and deal with second language acquisition, language teaching, research proposal, etc. I have also included my comprehensive research papers and a review of Larry Selinker's famous book, Rediscovering Interlanguage. Please feel free to download the papers, and share them with your colleagues. Please do not quote, because they are not published.
