 Giving details about the seminar, organizer and Head of the Department, Prof Nazir Ahmad Dhar said that in the past couple of decades tribal languages, a hitherto forgotten and less focused on discipline had started becoming the focus of intensive study. Prof Dhar said studies related to Tribal languages generally take the form of, either independent study of the tribal language, or study of tribal language vis-à-vis some other language, usually a contact language. Prof Nazir said that former study involves issues related to language documentation and corpus linguistics, and the later study involves issues from the perspective of language contact, sociolinguistics, etc. 
 He said that language technology and field linguistics are some of the tools which can be used for the overall study. In this  backdrop, said Prof Dhar, the Department of Linguistics, University of Kashmir is organizing a three day seminar.
