Vaagri Boli, an Indo-Aryan Language. Annamalai University Department of Linguistics Publication No. 21.
Varma, G. Srinivasa
The present study of Vaagri Boli is the first attempt to record this spoken language "systematically." The author defines Vaagri Boli, the language of the migratory Narikkorvas/Kuruvikkarans in Tamil Nadu, as a member of an inner subgroup of Indo Aryan languages. Following a brief description of the cultural characteristics of the speakers, chapters treat phonemics, morphophonemics, form classes, and syntax. A 2,436-item Vaagri Boli-English dictionary, an English index, and a bibliography are appended. All Vaagri Boli material appears in phonemic transcription. (AMM)
