Politics of Language and Linguistic Identity: Sadri Replacing other Adivasi Languages in Sundargarh
Keywords:Sadri, Politics, Language, Identity, Culture, Society
Movements related to languages are interesting phenomena with a load of consequences on the fate of languages. A powerful language with state backing is capable of weakening and dismantling the structure of a language which is less powerful and without any political backings. However, there are languages which find other ways to growth and popularity. People find interesting reasons to switch to a different language. Sadri, tribal lingua-franca in the district of Sundargarh, Odisha is enjoying a privileged linguistic space at the cost of other adivasi languages.
