Dear Linguist

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan as well as our 
university desire to introduce Master and Ph.D. level research in the 
domain of Information Technology/ Computer Science.

We have a number of students who have finished M.Sc. (computer Science) 
from our university and are very enthusiastic to pursue post-graduate 
research. Their research will be funded by the Higher Education 
Commission of Pakistan.

My research has been in the area of recognition of basic-sounds 
(vowels and some consonants), speech synthesis etc. I would like to 
continue in the same area especially for Urdu (Pakistani Language). 
Unfortunately I have been out of touch with research for some time.

I would like suggestions from the Linguists on RECENT topics of 
research in Urdu recognition and synthesis WHICH IS PUBLISHABLE IN 
STANDARD JOURNALS. TEXT-TO-TEXT MACHINE TRANSLATION (URDU TO ENGLISH) IS 
ALSO IN MY INTEREST. I WOULD ALSO LIKE RESEARCH COLLABORATION. I will be 
having four to five research students in Oct this year. THANKS.

May I have some suggestions on Journals we should subscribe to.
