Re: tamil/english- help needed
- Hello mahesh,
U r doing a good work... I am a post graduate stduent
in speech language pathology in India. I am right now involved in a
research work on code-switching behavior in persons with stuttering
and normal fluency. My subjects will be bilingual speakers with any
south Indian language as L1 and English as L2.
I had gone to the central Instt of Indian Languages (Mysore) for my
work.. I met many eminent linguists who had done work on CSW. I will
forward their email ids to you. You can contact them. They will be
helpful. Also, if you have collected any lit in ur area which you
thin will be useful to me, could u please forward them to me?.
In my Uni, there are many malaysian and Srilankan tamil speakers...
When I converse with them, I find their lang more superior to mine
(inspite of the fact that i come from THANJAVUR) because it matches
more exactly with the grammar that I had learnt during my school
days. I am gald that ur investigation is focussing on thsi aspect.
keep in touch,
Let me know about yor work,
Email ids og Dr Subbu Krishna and Dr Devaki of Central instt of
