This volume of the People’s Linguistic Survey of India, The Languages of Andhra Pradesh (volume three, part two-AP), discusses the languages spoken in Andhra Pradesh. The state boasts of a rich history and cultural heritage and has a vibrant linguistic landscape. Telugu, the official language, has been declared a Classical Language owing to its prosperous literary tradition which is discussed in the volume. The state is home to several communities, whose languages are also examined along with their grammatical features, domains of use, folktales, folk songs and vocabulary lists. The volume hopes to shed light on the status of languages in the state and acquaint the reader with the state’s multilingual nature.

G. N. Devy is the chief editor of the PLSI series. He taught at the Maharaja Sayajirao University, Baroda, till 1996 before leaving to set up the Bhasha Research Centre in Baroda and the Adivasi Akademi at Tejgadh. There, he worked towards conserving and promoting the languages and culture of indigenous and nomadic communities. Apart from being awarded the Padma Shree, he has received many awards for his work in literature and language conservation.
