STATUS MARKING IN TAMIL - A CASE STUDY
A Ph.D. Dissertation

P. Perumalsamy, Ph.D.


In this dissertation, Dr. Perumalsamy investigates the processes of status marking in Tamil. As the dissertation was not available in electronic format, Language in India www.languageinindia.com scanned the typewritten pages as jpeg images and then converted these into pdf pages. As pdf pages take a lot of bytes and thus it will be difficult to upload and download for most of us around the world, groups of pages containing only a few pages in each group are given in an orderly fashion. Please click on the links for pages given below. This will take you to the relevant pdf pages. You can easily navigate using the backarrow in your browser from one page to another.
