Her research interests include varieties of English, language and identity, business communication, and postcolonial literature. Manique Gunesekera has collected a wide array of words used in Sri Lanka, forming an integral part of the English spoken today in the island. From the villages and cities, the universities and offices, the collection gives an insight into the humour and the wit of the Sri Lankan. Some words have found their way into universal dictionaries while others are used in literary works in English, giving a flavour of the richness and depth of Sri Lankan society.
