Product Description

What is Hinglish—sociolect, insurrection or language? Why and how does Hinglish occupy such a prominent place in our daily language? What does it represent and how does it define our notions of self? Hinglish Live asks these and other questions about English and language mixing in contemporary India across a range of media domains—from English teaching to advertising; FM radio to literature; newspapers to cinema; technology to TV programmes. The essays in this volume are interdisciplinary, juxtaposing the personal with the political, the academic with the popular, and are complemented by a selection of images that demonstrate how widespread the use of Hinglish is.
