Language Matter is a collection of thirteen articles written by the faculty of the central Institute of English and Foreign Languages, Hyderabad. Many of them deal with various issues pertaining to language, literature and translation, and range from the varieties of English in India to textual criticism to discussions of problems of translations from European languages into Indian Languages.
