1. A method of receiving control information at a mobile station (MS) in a multi-carrier wireless communication system, the method comprising:
establishing multiple forward link carriers between the MS and a base station (BS),
wherein each of the multiple forward link carriers is separated from each other in a frequency domain;
establishing multiple reverse link carriers between the MS and the BS,
wherein each of the multiple reverse link carriers is associated with a respective one of the multiple forward link carriers, and separated from each other in the frequency domain;
receiving first control information for a first reverse link carrier of the multiple reverse link carriers; and
receiving second control information for a second reverse link carrier of the multiple reverse link carriers, the second control information for the second reverse link carrier being different from the first control information for the first reverse link carrier,
wherein the first control information for the first reverse link carrier and the second control information for the second reverse link carrier are received from the BS via a common forward link carrier of the multiple forward link carriers between the MS and the BS.
