Peter Lang AG Issues "Studies in English"

The Staff of the Department of English/ College of Education has been honoured by Peter Lang AG's publication of the first born book for the Department Members who agreed to contribute with their papers. These papers represent a cross-section of the research work conducted in the Department. The publication of the book signifies a lot to us. It would not only propel future studies on relevant topics but also it would open new vistas for Iraqi academics and place them in an international perspective for the first time in decades. The Papers represent work in various fields of study including phonetics and phonology, linguistics, ELT, pragmatics, discourse analysis, and literary stylistics. The Book printed in Germany and coming in 306 pages is entitled "University of Basrah: Studies in English" edited by Jinan Fedhil Al-Hajaj and Dr Graeme Davis. Al-Hajaj is a lecturer in the Department, University of Basrah, whose interests are in literature, literary stylistics and discourse analysis while Dr Davis is a lecturer in English Linguistics at the Open University, UK, and a researcher in English historical linguistics and the study of the North Atlantic region in the Middle Ages.
Thanks to Miss Jinan and Dr. Davis for offering this chance as we are looking forward for further cooperation in future.
