Negotiating languages: Urdu, Hindi, and the defination of modern South Asia

Hakala, Walter N.

₹ 1250.00

This book casts lexicographers as key figures in the political realignment of South Asia under British rule and in the years after independence. A brilliant contribution to the story of how Hindustani emerged as a standardized comprehensive language, and in the end diverged into Urdu and Hindi as language of cultural and national identity.
