Bilingualism and Syntactic Change in Konkani
Nadkarni, Mangesh V.
Language, 51, 3, 672-683, Sep 75
The syntax of the relative clause in the Saraswat Brahmin dialect of Konkani, an Indo-Aryan language, has been Dravidianized because of the impact of the Dravidian Kannada language, operating through bilingual speakers. The Konkani-Kannada bilingual situation is described and an explanatory account of the syntactic change is given. (Author/CLK)
