The present work attempts to identify spatial patterns fo the extent and

nature of language shifts among the tribal population in India. It provides

social, economic and political dimensions of changing linguistic identity.

Based on both secondary and primary data, some of the socio-economic

variables have been statistically tested through Correlation and Regression

to determine the relationship with language shifts. The impact of

urbanisation and regional development on the linguistic behaviour of the

tribal population has been analysed.

The study rejects the claim that language shift indicates the process of

integration--rather it shows the process of assimilation of the tribal

people into the majority culture group. In fact, language shifts among

these societies have been perceived more often as social compulsions.

The study emphasises the need of promoting and preserving the tribal

languages as these are cultural heritage of India. The study may provide a

basis to understand the dynamics of language shift--as it might have

implications of language planning in multilingual societies like India.
