Sri Lanka: English and More!

cerno on a book that explores English as a language in Sri Lanka. “In terms of its content, the book has two broad areas. The first is an overview of the can of worms that is the history, politics, and socio-cultural perceptions of English (and its place) in Sri Lanka. The second is essentially a story of linguistic mutation told with the mechanics of linguistics and peppered with examples familiar to most Sri Lankans.”
