    Here is introduction of my article:
    The history and evolution of the languages both have the closest relationship according to age and nearly equal of the age of human life. There are some peculiar characteristics and attributes to a language for long term restoration to sustain itself as a language. In this article some peculiar properties will be probed out by analysis of existing literature. Firstly, the parameters of a universal language will be discussed which are very important for any language survival and without these attributes a language can not survive and neither be popular nor can be spread around the world. If these properties are not a part of a language, it can not survive itself for a long time and will die after some decades. The absence of these characteristics will not be accepted by any human community. Actually if a language is not supported by some necessary elements of linguistics then it may disappeared rapidly. In this article the main emphasis is given to some of the linguistic characteristics and author have tried to search out some universal factors & its characteristics upon which a language can stand as an international language. According to latest linguistic survey the total no. of world’s spoken languages is nearly 6809. [1] A small no of languages about (10) have been popular at the world level due to different historical and linguistic reasons.

    Salam to all
    I tried to submit my article about urdu in AUS but still no response. I think either work is too much or it has lost favour of the urdu community. I may be wrong in my opinion but one can conclude like this if he finds a cold response. Can you please tell me the matter what is the actual problem with AUS Journal. Thanks
