Abstract:

This sociolinguistic survey took place in southern Rajasthan and northern Gujarat where the Rajput Garasia, Adiwasi Garasia, and Bhil peoples are concentrated. This survey report draws together what we have found to be the case thus far for the Garasia and Bhil-related groups of northern Gujarat and southern Rajasthan. What is presented in this report may have to be modified as more information becomes available. Also, over the course of time, language and societies change. They are dynamic, but this report is static. This report is not the final word on the matters it addresses. Even so, this report on the languages of the Garasia and Bhil-related groups of northern Gujarat and southern Rajasthan should prove to be very helpful for those who are interested in these peoples.
