Kamila Ghazali (PhD) is an Associate Professor at the Department of English Language, Faculty of Languages and Linguistics, University of Malaya. Her areas of academic expertise are critical discourse analysis and sociolinguistics. Her research is on political discourse, media discourse, and ethnolinguistics delving into the language and culture of the orang asli (indigenous peoples). Apart from journal articles, she has published a book on an analysis of the political speeches of the former Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. She was part of a group project on the Mah Meri language which produced a full description of the language and a tri-lingual dictionary. Her interest in indigenous languages has brought her to the longhouses in Sarawak where she conducted a preliminary sociolinguistic survey of the Tatau, Lugat, and Punan Ba to the jungles of Endau, Johor, to research on the Jakun community. Since 2001, she has held several management roles at the faculty as well as university levels. They include the posts of Deputy Dean, Faculty of Languages and Linguistics; Chief Quality Auditor UM; Director of International and Corporate Relations (ICR), UM; and, Deputy Dean, Institute of Graduate Studies, UM.
