  2. hi its really a great job you are doing. Im a faculty of pg course in a pg centre. Eventhough i have not studied linguistics in my postgraduation the english department assigned me to teach linguistics to pg students. As i have completed the pg last year only it was a challenge for me to engage classes, that too an unknown subject. Then i found your website which helped me a lot particularly in the areas like sound system of english.. . . . . 🙂 thank you for your service. If you provide me more material or guidance regarding the subject personaly i will be more happy because the institution in which im working is a government institute. Even there is a lack of basic amenities like library, internet etc. So im expecting reply from your side. Thank you.
