Appendix Bibliography Illustrations IndexAbout The Book:- Cultural Traits Of A Given Society Are Always Unique In Nature. But Unlike Scientific And Technological Changes That Can Be Understood And Perceived In A Very Tangible Sense, Cultural Changes Happening Within A Society Are Not Easy To Locate And Identify. More So, When The Society Under Consideration Is Economically And Socially The Most Deprived. In Recent Decades, Study Of Tribal Culture Has Assumed Greater Significance In Light Of Increased Focus On Their Life And Livelihood, Resulting Out Of A Potent Threat To Their Very Existence On This Earth. With The Onslaught Of Modernization And Urbanization, The Tribal Identity Is At Stake. Language Has Always Been Extensively Accepted As A Major Indicator Of One's Cultural Identity. But Today The Tribals No Longer Perceive Their Native Languages As Economically Or Socially Viable. In The Context Of Such Language Endangerment Situation, This Book Throws Light On The Plight Of Some Of Our Tribal Languages Which Are Today On The Verge Of Becoming Dead Languages. The Book Also Offers Some Mitigation Measures That Can Serve As Long-Term Developmental Plans For The Endangered Tribal Languages. This Book Will Be Useful For Students And Scholars Of Linguistics, Tribal Studies, Sociology, History, Anthropology And Cultural Studies, For People Interested In Policy-Making Vis-À-Vis Tribal Issues And Problems, And For Any Discerning Reader Concerned About The State Of Our Languages., About The Author:- Seemita Mohanty Is An Associate Professor In English In The Department Of Humanities And Social Sciences At National Institute Of Technology, Rourkela, And Has Sixteen Years Of Teaching And Research Experience.
