Abstract: 

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. 

Lingfield(s): Sociolinguistics
