Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

The aim of the 17th IUAES2013 session titled ‘Issues of Migration and Its Linguistic Consequences in the Different Regions of South Asia throughout the History’ is to explore the issues of linguistic consequences, e.g. language shift and creation of lingua francas which occurred due to the immigration and internal migration of various speech communities in the different regions of South Asia throughout the history.

The immigration of various speech communities occurred in South Asia in different phases throughout the history. It frequently occurred with the incidence of conquest and colonization. The immigration of the Aryans and Central Asians, and the colonization by the British (and partly by the Tibetans), shaped the linguistic composition of South Asia. Therefore, the language situation which now persists in South Asia has been gradually created through language contact between the languages of immigrants’ speech communities and indigenous communities. The pattern of language contact, however, changed over time with the occurrence of each major flow of migration. Regardless of this pattern, the immigrants’ languages always played dominant roles, changing the languages of both immigrant and native speech communities and creating a few lingua francas in the different regions of South Asia. Accordingly, the proposed panel will address the following issues relating to the linguistic consequences of migration in South Asia:

a) Timeline of major events of migration of various speech communities in the language situation of South Asia
b) Linguistic consequences of the immigration of various speech communities in South Asia
c) Process of creation of lingua francas due to the linguistic consequences of migration in South Asia
d) Present trend of language contact due to the migration in the language situation in South Asia

This academic session aims to facilitate communication and exchange of information and experience among the scholars, academics and students who are involved in the study of migration and its linguistic consequences in South Asia and other parts of the world.


The 17th World Congress of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES2013) will be convened in Manchester City, U.K. from 5-10 August, 2013 (See http://www.iuaes2013.org). The Congress has the overall theme 'Evolving Humanity, Emerging Worlds' and will be hosted by the University of Manchester with the support of Manchester City Council. As a part of this congress, there will be an academic session on 'Issues of Migration and Its Linguistic Consequences in the Different Regions of South Asia throughout the History'. The Congress Agenda is being planned by a UK Organizing Committee which includes a panel as follows:

a) Title of the panel: Issues of Migration and Its Linguistic Consequences in the Different Regions of South Asia throughout the History
b) Panel Code: MMM15
c) Panel URL: http://www.nomadit.co.uk/iuaes/iuaes2013/panels.php5?PanelID=1467
