Teaching Profile

1. Teaching undergraduate students since August 1994.
               The course content prescribed by the affiliating university includes the socio-historical contexts of the growth and evolution of the Malayalam language; the literary and cultural tradition of Kerala in the larger multi-ethnic and multilingual Indian context; segments introducing the recent intellectual and theoretical developments in the study of culture and literature etc. Texts by various authors are taught in a programme spread over two years.
Teaching language through literature is done through a discussion of linguistic and stylistic features, through tasks aimed at developing specific writing skills etc. There is an effort to develop in the students an understanding of different literary genres and text types and to provide them training in creative writing in Malayalam. Students are encouraged to write, translate and publish; very detailed discussions, suggestions for improvement etc. form essential components of this segment. Some students have gone on to publish individual pieces as well as anthologies. Students are also given training in writing for media, advertising etc.; they are trained to write scripts, news reports, brochures etc. They are also given training in various communicative skills needed in different situations through simulating various communication situations.
Some of these later components are add-on features not prescribed by the university but are done regularly and systematically.
The BA Functional English students of our college are given guidance and assistance in the writing of their dissertations/projects in various areas like translation, media analysis, script writing, feature writing etc. Guidance is given in both methodology and content.
One of the challenges before a Malayalam teacher in the current situation in Kerala in which Malayalam is in a position of disadvantage vis-à-vis English as the language of instruction and learning is to develop a positive attitude among the students towards their mother tongue and its literature.

2. Taught advanced courses in Malayalam (as the second language) to teachers from various parts of India as part of their in-service training at the Southern Regional Language Centre, Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore during January-April 1994.

3. Worked as lecturer in Malayalam in St. Philomena’s College, Mysore, Karnataka State for a year (1994-1995). The details are similar to those in the present working situation.

4. As a member of the Board of Studies UG Malayalam(from 2008-2010)and  PG Malayalam from 2010 onwards) of Kannur University, I was involved in the design and development of the curricula and syllabus. As the Member, an Expert committee in the Department of Rural and Tribal Sociology, Kannur University I was involved in the design and development of the curriculum and syllabus of M A Tribal Sociology.
5. I have been taking classes for students of  MA Malayalam through Distance Education

Total teaching experience : 23 years

Research profile

I  have interest in the fields like  Theoretical Linguistics, Language Teaching (Malayalam), Lexicography, Folkloristics, Media Studies, and Film Studies 

·        Details of the research leading to Ph D

Ph.D. from the University of Mysore, in 2003 on the topic- ‘The Language of Headlines in Malayalam Dailies’  under the supervision of Prof C S Ramachandra, former  Director, Kuvempu Institute of Kannada Studies, Mysore University.

This work is an attempt to demonstrate that newspaper headlines in Malayalam are a functional variety in themselves and not simply the products of certain liberties taken with language to meet the exigencies of newspaper production. A detailed analysis of syntactic and stylistic features of the language is dealt with in this work. The study explores the relationship between function and form of headlines and attempts to find out how this relationship is manifested in morphology, syntax, and vocabulary of the language of headlines in Malayalam.

·         Completed a UGC-sponsored minor research project titled A Sociolinguistic Study on the Kurichyas of Wayanad. The Kurichyas are an indigenous tribe belonging to this area. The study is focused mainly on language shift/maintenance; language attitude; the influence of mainstream languages like Malayalam and Kannada, on the Kurichya tongue etc.

·         Experience and Training in Material Production
I have been associating with Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore, as a resource person, for the production of language teaching materials since 1992. I have worked in various projects along with other researchers and teachers for developing teaching materials for second language learners of Malayalam.

·         1. BharathiyaBhashaJyothy-Malayalam:  I was a member of the team which produced BharathiyaBhashaJyothy-Malayalam, a learning textbook for Hindi mother tongue speakers. My contribution was the structural gradation of Malayalam grammar, creating a situation suitable for a particular grammatical structure etc.

·         2. Pictorial Grammar of Malayalam for second language learners: Since it is a supplementary teaching material for second language learners, all the basic sentence patterns of Malayalam with their structural features are depicted in a graded manner through line drawings and stick figures with necessary brief notes in one or two sentences wherever necessary. It also helps those casual learners who are not bothered about learning to read and write in Malayalam but who could use the material for understanding the frequent sentence patterns used in day to day informal speech situations. My contributions include conceptual input, structural gradation of Malayalam sentences, visualization of the grammatical categories of Malayalam with sketches etc. This will be published by Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore in a printed form as well as in online. (

·         3 Language Games in Malayalam: This is a language teaching material for both mother tongue speakers and second language Speakers. These games are designed to promote the linguistic growth of a second language learner/ MT children and to stimulate and encourage children to go in search of extra reading materials, and reference materials such as dictionaries and encyclopedias. All these provide enough food for thought and fun and equally help the language users sharpen their language tools.

·         4. Malayalam-English -Japanese Dictionary for adult learners of Malayalam: Worked as Research Fellow in Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore for one year (1992-1993) in the Indo-Japanese Lexicography Project for compiling a Malayalam-English-Japanese dictionary for second language learners. I was a member of the team in charge of identifying and compiling Malayalam lexemes to suit the requirements of second language learners.

·         5. Multipurpose Indian Languages Evaluation System (MILES):   Associated with Testing and Evaluation Unit of Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore and contributed for the preparation of  Multipurpose Indian Languages Evaluation System (MILES).  In this project,  I could work with a team of teachers and researchers in creating the database on proficiency test contents of Malayalam language and literature and developed content resources for assessing Mastery of Language and Literature and assessing personality through Language and Literature.
