Peoples Linguistic Survey of India: Volume 37 (English and Other International Languages)

G. N. Devy (Editor) T. Vijay Kumar (Editor)

English and Other International Languages (People’s Linguistic Survey of India, Volume 37) discusses the status of English and other foreign languages which continue to have a presence in India. While Section I discusses the complex progression of English in the Indian linguistic scene and its increasing acceptance among the people here, Section II describes the status and development of eight other international languages in use in India. The volume also observes how India’s engagement with foreign cultures has enriched the multilingual mosaic of the country.
