The Club and the Activities 

Delhi University Linguistics Club (DULC) was established on June 13, 2001 by one of the Alumni of the department. Though the club was initially floated as an e-group of some friends. It has grown many fold now. The present Aim of the club is primarily to have common platform for enhanced communication among the current students, alumni and the faculty members of the Department of Linguistics, University of Delhi. We want to make this forum as useful as possible, keeping this in mind we haven't restricted the membership of this exclusively for people affiliated to Delhi University and we invited people who have been visiting the department most often. Recently it has been open to everyone.

We hope the forum will prove beneficial specially for the new-comers in linguistics at Delhi University and they can use the club to ask questions to senior members and professors raising their research topics. We also appeal to the alumni spread around the globe, senior members and faculty to initiate discussion on important linguistics issues and participate actively in the discussions.

My Experiences of SALA XXI
Sadaf Munshi
University of Texas
Austin, USA

Hello all of you!

It gives me great pleasure to share my experience at
The South Asian Language Analysis Roundtable (SALA)-XXI.

The SALA-XXI was held at the University of Konstanz, Germany from October 7-10, 2001 and many well-known linguists and scholars attended the conference. It was a great experience of learning, sharing and propagating the different aspects of linguistic knowledge enriched with the cordial atmosphere (which all the participants really cherished) that greeted all of us from the very first day of the conference for which I feel grateful to the SALAXXI Program Committee, especially Aditi Lahiri, Miriam Butt, Hani Babu, and their associates. The conference, truly speaking, has provided me( and of course many others) with a new insight into the field of linguistics and rejuvenated my interest as well as an inspiration towards working with a fresh outlook. Various informal discussions outside the formal conference scenario also provided rich information about different perspectives and aspects of the linguistic science and the working of Language.

I should also admit the nervousness that I entered the scenario with as well as the confidence that I developed during the course of it which has really helped me try build a new foundation towards continuing working in an area probably not receiving enough focus and attention in the present era of linguistic science and philosophy. And let me also admit the fact that the event has been a source of new hopes for many of us, especially those that are the entering lot.

Among some of the beginning, or I should rather say, the so-called "budding" linguists the DU Linguists would perhaps feel familiar to this very popular term), were two of us - Vijay Thakur (presently in Univ. of Illinois) and I as the ex-Delhi University students( I have not yet learned to see myself as part of the other University).

It was a gathering of many well-known scholars of great linguistic expertise in different areas of the discipline . Some of the very familiar scholars were Miriam Butt(University of Konstanz), Probal Dasgupta(Univ. of Hyderabad), Alice Davison(University of Iowa), Hans Henrick Hock (University of Illinois), K.A. Jayseelan (CIEFL, Hyderabad), LV Kokhlova(Moscow State University),Aditi Lahiri(University of Konstanz), Gautam Sengupta (University of Hyderabad), rajendra Singh(University of Montreal), KV Subbarao(University of Delhi), MK Verma(University of York), Boris Zakharyin<Moscow State University), and many others.

The conference helped us get to know various different fields of research being done in the field of linguistics in different parts of the world. Of course, much needs to be explored and much is still there to be known about Language and how it works, about how it is influenced by various factors, about how languages change and influence each other, and so on. Such occasions are a real source of learning and sharing the different aspects of an area and introducing us to the emerging problems and their solutions.

Truly speaking, it really was cherishable experience for all of us. My special thanks goes to all the program committee of the SALA01.

With regards
