Mathai, Eldose K.
This report summarises a brief sociolinguistic survey conducted among the Nagarchi community of central India. The fieldwork was conducted in August 2005. The purpose of the survey was to assess the need for language-development work among the Nagarchi people. Interviews, observations, and attempted wordlist collection were the tools used in this survey. The findings are: (1) Nagarchal (also known as Nagarchi) does not appear to be a viable language at this time. (2) Nagarchi people in central India have shifted to Gondi and Hindi.
