Foreword
Linguistics has progressively been recognised as important because of the theoretical insights it has provided for the study of disciplines like Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, and Political Science and because of its practical application in education, administration and communication. Whether it is bouncing messages through satellite, research on artificial intelligence or developing scientific temper, linguistics has a crucial role to. play. The American Mathematical Society opened a section on Linguistics as early as 1961 and today Sociolinguistics is accorded recognition as serious social science all over the world.

The study of language use has gradually emerged a significant area of research as the interests of many scholars has converged on this. Scholars interested in extending the frontiers of traditional linguistic domain have focused on speech acts in the study of language use. The study of language use by the professionals such as lawyers, doctors, workers, bureaucrats, etc., has added a significant dimension. It has been of central concern in the context of language maintenance and language shift on the one hand, and language allocation and language spread in the context of language planning on the other. With the interests of many specialists converging on the study of language use, it becomes rewarding from the points of view of both theory and application to focus on language use in different contexts.

One of the characteristics of modern urban centres is its pluralistic character. The lure of economic opportunities attracts peoples from different linguistic regions. Whether it is doctor patient communication, labour-management communication, buyer-seller communication. or communication among the labourers and among the managers in such multilingual contexts, it is a challenge before sociolinguists.

The study on the Linguistic Repertoire, Communication and Interaction Networks in Industry breaks a new ground and raises many issues on organizational communication, management problems, language use in diverse organisational contexts and code-switching strategies reflecting multilingual communication, social interaction and language identity. The setting of industry supports grass-root multilingualism and provides challenging task in the study of language use in a work situation. If the present work stimulates further research on the issues raised here, it would have served its purpose.
