I received a Ph.D. in Linguistics and Certificate in TESOL from the University of Southern California in 1982. My areas of concentration were Sociolinguistics, Teaching ESL and the History of English. I have done research and published in the fields of English for Specific Purposes and World Englishes. My present interest and areas of research are the use of English in advertising in Iran and the use of English in advertising, the linguistic landscape and Radio & Television in Mexico.
