Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sri Lankan English (SLE) is the English language as spoken in Sri Lanka. The earliest English speakers in present-day Sri Lanka date back to the days of the British Empire, the era of Royal Navy dominance, and the British colonial presence in South Asia. An SLE consultant for the Oxford English Dictionary and author of the book Knox's Words notes that British readers first encountered loan words from Sri Lanka (then known as Ceylon) in a book published in 1681 entitled An Historical Relation of the Island Ceylon in the East Indies. Words from that book became used internationally: the best known is Buddha but others include Anaconda, betel leaf, bo tree, pooja, rattan, rillow, Vedda, and wanderoo.
