The People’s Linguistics Survey of India tries to give an idea of the extant and dying languages of India. It is the outcome of a nationwide survey of languages that has been documented by linguists, writers, social activists, and members of different speech communities.

Maharashtra is India’s third largest state and also its most industrialised. This volume informs the reader about the variety of languages that are prevalent and in use in the state. One of its interesting features is that it discusses the varieties of Marathi in use, and also different tribal languages. Apart from this, it also details the languages of nomadic communities and also has a chapter on the code language of the nomads.
