The Languages of Telangana: Vol 3, Part II-TS by Ganesh N. Devy & A. Usha Devi

The youngest state in India, Telangana, was formed after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh in 2014 on linguistic grounds, and is a melting pot of cultures and languages. It shares a joint linguistic history with Andhra Pradesh, Telugu being the dominant language in both states. This volume of the People’s Linguistic Survey of India, The Languages of Telangana (volume three, part two-TS), discusses the major languages spoken in the state and also the tribal languages, along with a detailed exploration of their vocabulary, folktales, folk songs, and domains of use. The volume hopes to be a valuable addition to the PLSI series, as it attempts to describe the languages spoken in this newly-formed state.
