Title:The Kurux of Bangladesh: A Sociolinguistic Survey
Abstract:This paper reports on sociolinguistic research conducted among the (Oraon) Kurux community living in northwest Bangladesh. This research was conducted in July 2005. The goals of the research were to investigate linguistic variation among Kurux, long-term viability of Kurux, speakers' language attitudes towards Kurux and other languages, and speakers' bilingual abilities in Oraon Sadri and Bangla. Wordlist comparisons, questionnaires, interviews, and a Bangla Sentence Repetition Test were used. Especially interesting are the demographic patterns of bilingual ability that are emerging in the community and the influence of Bangla on the Kurux language.
