Sumana Bandyopadhyay examines the linguistic aspects of Indian English literary works in the context of multilingualism and importance of a second language in India. The exploratory work discusses the domains in which Indian English tends to be used and linguistic factors determining the Indianness of Indian English. With detailed excerpts from some of the well-known authors in Indian English including Amitav Ghosh, Vikram Seth, Salman Rushdie and Arundhati Roy, it defines Indian English and the process of Indianisation of English. It tries to find out certain aspects of Indiannness of Indian English at the levels of phomnology, morphology, syntax and semantics. It deals with the functional features of Indian English with specific reference to repetition, clichés and Indianisms. It points out certain interesting features of Indian English, such as repetition being a major feature in conversational extracts and frequent occurrence of that complementiser and comparatively sparse occurrence of wh-complementiser.
