The multi-volume People’s Linguistic Survey of India (PLSI), provides an overview of the extant and dying languages of India, as evolved till 2011, and as perceived by their speakers. The volumes chronicle the evolution of these languages in all their socio-political and linguistic dimensions, and encapsulate the worldview of their speakers.
The work addresses the need to look at the languages of indigenous people, minority communities, and the marginalised and bring them to the centre of compelling language debates in the contemporary world.
The States Series documents the languages prevalent across the states of India. The National Series brings together the languages listed in the Eighth Schedule of the Indian Constitution. The latter also focuses on Indian languages in the diaspora, foreign languages in India, Indian sign language(s),and language census, survey and policy.
