“LANGUAGE IS A PROCESS OF FREE CREATION, ITS LAWS AND PRINCIPLES ARE FIXED, BUT THE MANNER IN WHICH PRINCIPLES OF GENERATION ARE USED IS FREE AND INFI- NITELY VARIED.” -NOAM CHOMSKY Have you ever thought of language as a miracle? If not just give a thought and if it is a yes, then you have wondered about this mira- cle at least once in your life time. I have often been awestruck about its acquisition. It’s a mystery to find a new born speaking his/her mother tongue without any prior training or knowledge and that is the miracle behind languages. According to Chomsky, each human being is equipped with a de- vice named Lan- guage Acquisi- tion Device THE GREATEST (LAD) which helps him/her MIRACLE to ac- quire and un- derstand an un- known language. Theories still remains insufficient in this matter. Language is the greatest gift showered on mankind by the Almighty. It gives us freedom of ex- pression and thought, which revives the human mind and soul. Language makes us different as it becomes a distinctive quality of a man. Language at the same time is a destructive weapon which can mark an end to everything significant, if not used in a disciplined and intelligent manner but in spite of all these it is still the most wondrous miracle ever created and each and every one of us should owe a deep sense of gratitude for the omnipotent creator. Wishing all the readers peace and harmony during the month of Ramadan. Ramadan Kareem! - Gayathry Nandanan EditorPRERANA ISSUE : 2VOLUME - 5 ASIS
