Central Institute of Indian Languages was set up on
the 17th July, 1969 with a view to assisting and co-ordinating
the development of Indian Languages. The Institute was
charged with the responsibility of serving as a nucleus
to bring together all the research and literary out-put
from the various linguistic streams to a common head
and narrowing the gap between basic research and development
research in the fields of languages and linguistics
Institute and its four regional centres are thus engaged
in research and teaching which lead to the publication
of a wide ranging variety of materials. Materials designed
for teaching/learning at different levels and suited
to specific needs is one of the major areas of interest
in its series of publications. Basic research relating
to the acquisition of language and study of language
in its manifold psychosocial relations constitute another
broad range of its interest. These materials will include
materials produced by the members of the staff of the
Central Institute of Indian Languges and its Regional
Language Centres and associated scholars from Universities
and Institutions both Indian and foreign.
Central Institue of Indian Languages has initiated the
Pictorial Glossary Series in Indian Languges which add
visual cues to printed words. Designed for a wide ranging
audience, it aims at improving both reading and comprehension.

Common Vocabulary series. We hope that addition of this
Pictorial Glossary Series will go a long way in making
teaching and learning more enjoyable.
