Indlish ; The Book For Every English Speaking Indian
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Millions of us, Indians, know English and we think we know it well.
Sanyal shows us that we don’t. He lists out the many cliches, outdated expressions, indianisms and inaccuracies that characterise Indian English, and gives alternatives. To get his point across, he uses real examples of sentences and paragraphs, and rephrases them. Much of his criticism is directed at journalists and bureaucrats, for their Victorian English, cliches and indirectness, among other things. But this book will benefit not just them; as the title accurately says, this is a ‘book for every English-speaking Indian’.
Simply put, he shows you how to write plain English.
