We do not at the present time know how the language situation in a multilingual region such as South Asia will be affected by modern information and communication technologies: Will linguistic diversity be strengthened or weakened as they become increasingly prevalent in all walks of life? This volume brings together articles on South Asian descriptive linguistics and sociolinguistics, documentary linguistics, issues of intellectual and cultural property and fieldwork ethics, and language technology. The book provides the reader with some basic knowledge of the problems concerned and some directions from which solutions could be forthcoming.
Anju Saxena is Associate Professor at Uppsala University, Sweden. Lars Borin is Professor at Goteborg University, Sweden.
