This volume of the People’s Linguistic Survey of India (volume eight, part two) attempts a detailed discussion of Konkani its variations. It is unique in that such an attempt to record this diversity hasn’t been made before. The volume sheds light on Konkani’s linguistic richness, its struggle to be recognised as a Scheduled Language, its arduous journey in achieving its statehood and the myriad influences of other languages like French, Portuguese and Marathi have had on it. Linguistic features are discussed and folktales, riddles, popular phrases and proverbs are provided for the reader to understand the language better.
