Dr.Muthiah's research interests include Linguistics and Literature and the historical development of stylized Indian English.
I have a Ph.D in English from UNT. My research interests are in Linguistics and Literature, so I worked on both a Masters in Linguistics and in Literature, before going on to complete an interdisciplinary dissertation. I enjoy examining the use of stylized/fictionalized Indian English in novels. Currently, I’m researching the historical development of stylized Indian English.
