About the Journal

Repertus is an international research journal that focuses on the recent developments on issues related to linguistics-theoretical and practical- a wide range of subfields of linguistics. Moreover, South Asia has an interesting linguistic background. It is home to ancient languages and has also colonial past. Over the years, colonialism and the aftermath politico-ideological alignments have deeply impacted on the linguistics of this region. Therefore, Repertus is initiated with a particular interest to promote academic debate and authorship on policies related to language-in-education, minority language endangerment, shift, and revitalization, the development of English bilingualism, language attitudes. Repertus invites menuscripts from researchers, practitioners who focus on linguistics, language planning and policy in multilingual, post-colonial or in second language learning. 


Repertus not only promotes researchers who work in the areas of linguistics, language policy and planning in south Asian contexts but also in other countries too. Related to language planning and policy, the submissions may take a comparative view of Language policies or analyze policies of one context/region also within a country or across countries. Currently, we have western language theories and practices which are modified to be used in South Asian and other contexts. It is hoped that by specifically creating authorship in this domain, Repertus will strengthen the linguistic disciplines and empower practitioners, researchers, teachers and learners of these disciplines to develop tools to explore the full range of linguistic environments of South Asia. It will add diversity to linguistic research in the overall world scenario. It will also help the researchers who focus on other colonial countries.
