About this title
The aim of the book is to explain the constant success in the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) of speakers of the Indian language, Konkani, who live in Goa and to the south of Goa. The evidence seems to point, although inconclusively, to historical and sociolinguistic factors, some of which pertain to India as a whole, while others are unique to the Konkani-speaking regions.About the Author:
Dennis Kurzon is professor of English linguistics at Haifa University, Israel. He has published extensively on legal language and on pragmatics, including both books and articles. Apart from lectures given at various forums, the present book is Kurzon's first incursion into Indian sociolinguistics, based on four years of research including several trips to India.
