Application of computer for the study of language and other allied research in linguistics has been the foremost aim of this Department. Computer-oriented research is being extended to the study of literature, translation, lexicography, script conversion between Indian languages and also to the preparation of Electronic thesaurus for Tamil. Apart from independent research projects by the faculty of the Department, periodical refresher courses and training programmes are being conducted once a year.
