Institution: Anthropological Survey of India
Linguistic Field: Anthropological Linguistics
Abstract: Language of the human groups concerned is the indicator of multiplex dimensions but it is needed to be studied in the diversified background factors constituting various facets of the language. In this paper, the author puts forward the integrated perspective of the relation between language and man-nature international patterns, ecology has got an immense linkage with language. It has been detected through indepth study that nature appears in language in the form of eco projection of human experience which has made possible to propogate human realization on nature through eco-linguistics. The study here aims to expose the organisation of environmental knowledge of foraging speech communities living in the Andaman Islands. This lexical enquiry on man-nature interaction is expected to discern a very useful insight on the language analysis in the direct background situation of conspicuous environmental complexes.
