Title Review

This analysis of the language, structure, style and socio-cultural nuances of the Manipuri language examines kinship terminology, forms of address, the concept of taboo and differences relating to references to male and female in Manipuri, with specific reference to the period from the eighteenth century to the present. It defines socio-linguistics and its related aspects explaining numerous terms that come up in the course of the study. It focuses on the shift of emphasis and conflicts in the use of kinship terms, changes that have appeared in terms of address for kin, and changes in usage of taboo words over time. It emphasises the link between language and social relationships.
