Reviewer’s Comments to Authors

This study is aimed to highlight the passive words of Tamil used in modern Tamil literature. In the paper lots of passive words of Tamil and its pronunciation in the modern Tamil world are given.

Major Comments

  1. Very important part of any research study is objective. This paper is not framed with any objective it seems. There is no any objective of the study in any part of the paper. Without objective a research study will not be a complete one. So, the researcher has to add objectives of the study.
  2. There is no information on the research methodology used for the study. Researcher should concentrate on this part and give the methodology of selecting this particular topic (justification for selecting particular topic)

Minor Comments

  1. For every reference there should be a footnote in the relevant pages.
  2. Researcher can be highlight the research gap and pave the way for future research (scope for future research).

Associate Editor’s Critique

The study has much strength where there was very minor weakness also. The very important needed information of the study like objectives of the stud and footnote for every reference given are missing. The author should include all the needed information for the study to strengthen the value of the paper.
