A FUTURISTIC VIEW ON IMPACT OF CHINA PAKISTAN ECONOMIC CORRIDOR ON LINGUISTIC ECOLOGY OF PAKISTAN
Keywords:Linguistic ecology, Pidgin, Creole, Language
Language change, shift and death are dynamic processes which happen under several socio- historical, demographic, geographic and linguistic metamorphoses in the world. The economic romance with China Pakistan Economic Corridor is considered to be a "game and fate changer" for the regions especially South Asia, South East Asia, Middle East and even Africa. Whether this economic consecration would also result into changes in social dynamics or consequences in the forms of linguistic apocalypse, socio-cultural cataclysm and evolution in the literary produce would become a serious cause of ''game and fate changer'' for linguistic ecology of the regions. Perhaps, the history has not observed and witnessed pidginization, creolization and hybridization of languages at such a large scale that CPEC is going to leave nothing more than a byproduct. Here we hypothesize that this by product would change the linguistic ecology of Pakistan altogether which poses serious challenges for language maintenance in different domains of its function.
