The Department of English organized a seminar on ‘The Dimensions of Language and Criticism’ on January 04, 2023. Dr. M. Qasim Yaqoob graced the occasion as the guest speaker. The purpose of the seminar was to highlight how language and criticism are important tools to interpret a text. The dimensions of language refer to the various aspects or elements of language that can be analyzed or studied. These dimensions include phonetics, grammar, vocabulary, and pragmatics. Criticism, in the context of language, refers to the analysis and evaluation of the language used by the writer. Criticism can be used to identify and analyze patterns, themes, and issues in language use. It was also discussed that the meanings of the words are given by society and they also depend upon the context. At the end of the seminar, Prof. Dr. M. Umar Farooq, Head of the Department, expressed his gratitude to the speaker and presented him with a souvenir.
