   Abstract = {<jats:p>The intensity of cultural investment that South
             Asian societies have channeled into their languages and
             literatures, whether gauged in a globally comparative
             perspective or in absolute terms, is truly remarkable. The
             intellectual energies poured into linguistic and aesthetic
             expositions, the assiduous maintenance and temporal depth of
             written and oral traditions, or the complexity and
             consequence of sociolinguistic relations, both locally and
             in interactions of regional diversity, would each suffice on
             its own to underscore South Asia's marked preoccupation with
             language. Their combined effect, however, has at times
             produced a civilizational sphere whose very self-definition
             rested with foundational claims to achievement in language.
             Yet despite the richness of this linguistic and literary
             history (or, perhaps, because of it), relatively few studies
             combine substantive textual analyses with theoretical agenda
             adequate to a treatment of the multiplex roles and
             articulations of specific languages and their interactions
             in the constitution of particular South Asian
             societies.</jats:p>},

   Author = {Freeman, R},
   Title = {Rubies and Coral: The Lapidary Crafting of Language in
             Kerala},
   Journal = {The Journal of Asian Studies},
   Volume = {57},
   Number = {1},
   Pages = {38-65},
   Publisher = {Cambridge University Press (CUP)},
   Year = {1998},

   Abstract = {<jats:p>This paper addresses the problematic birth of the
             Malayalam language of Kerala in medieval South India. I say
             “problematic” because, of course, languages are never
             really born. Indeed, the dominant tradition of language
             genesis in India long asserted that all languages there only
             gradually arose by degenerate mutation out of the
             primordially beginningless Sanskrit. If there is a general
             truth to be found here, it is that since there are no human
             communities without speech, novel forms of language must
             always be emergent from earlier forms. Language
             <jats:italic>genesis</jats:italic> is thus always a matter
             of linguistic <jats:italic>differentiation</jats:italic>,
             away from some standard and towards another. But the
             sustained contrivance of these particular claims for
             Sanskrit also reflects another linguistic truth: that
             languages and their constituent elements are routinely
             shaped, conditioned, and ideologically figured by being
             themselves made into objects of discourse. In terms of
             language differentiation, this means the continuum of
             transformations that may at some point coalesce into a claim
             for linguistic separateness is always modeled and monitored
             in and through language itself. The reflexive or
             metalinguistic nature of this process, however, is always
             contextually oriented to the social fields in which it
             operates, so that the ideological positions and interests in
             those fields tend to carry over into the discursive products
             of a language and its literature. This study will attempt to
             highlight the web of relations among language varieties,
             ideologies, social contexts, and identities, as documented
             in a treatise on the language of medieval Kerala when that
             region first raised its claims for a distinctive linguistic
             identity.</jats:p>},
