Language Forum – LF (ISSN 0253-9071) started in 1975, is a peer-reviewed international journal that has been publishing original research papers devoted to the studies of LANGUAGE & LITERATURE for more than the past three decades. It is published in March and September every year.


The scope of the journal has over time, varied from pure Linguistics to pure Literature and sometimes both. Over the years, while it has dealt brilliantly with issues in modern Indo-English fiction, studies in the “comparative literature” domain, the issue of “tolerance” and “identity” in Indian poetry and fiction, the writings of and for the marginal sect of Indian society i.e. Dalits, the Indian and foreign English writers such as Anita Desai and T. S. Eliot etc, it has also thrown significant insight towards what is happening not only in Kashmiri linguistics but also in the vocabulary teaching methodologies, computational linguistics, stylistics, E.L.T, E.F.L, second language acquisition etc. The scope has been deliberately kept very broad to include the following disciplines and sub-disciplines of Language & Literature both:
