In "Hindi vs. Hinglish, Head to Head," scholar Ananya Vajpeyi traces the
evolution of Hindi from its roots in Hindustani to the “Hinglish” of today,
arguing that a language of 500 million people needs to develop a richer
vocabulary of social science and self-confidence to stand up to English.
To do this, she advocates an academy, much like the Académie
Française, to stave off linguistic pollution. Article can be found here:

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
