Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gondi is spoken by the Gondi people. It is one of the most important Central Dravidian languages, spoken by about two million people - chiefly in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattishgarh and in various adjoining areas of neighbouring states. Although it is the language of the Gond people, only about half of them still speak it. Gondi has no written literature, but it has a rich folk literature, examples of which are marriage songs and narrations. The language has a two-gender system, substantives being either masculine or nonmasculine. Gondi departed from the parent Proto-Dravidian language by developing initial voiced stops and aspirated stops.show more
