The Department of Linguistics was started in 1963. The pioneer work of the Dialect Survey of Malayalam covering all the Panchayats of Kerala and the Dialect Atlas prepared by marking isoglosses have received international recognition. In this field of dialect studies the department occupies the foremost position amongst the Indian Universities. The department has evolved and developed a pragmatic theory called Cognate Method of Language Teaching. This is considered to be most suitable for teaching and learning of related languages. Following the above said theoretical framework, the department had organised a number of intensive courses for teaching Malayalam, Tamil and Kannada. Another theory put forward by the department for the identification of syllable boundaries and the constituents within a syllable is also worth mentioning.
The department has hosted UGC sponsored summer schools, workshops and seminars on many occasions. The UGC had included this department under its DRS programme.
Technology and Resource Centre for Malayalam is also functioning under this Department.
