Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kodava Takk or Kodava takka, is the original language of the south Karnataka district of Kodagu. The language is often called Kodava or Coorg language in English. The number of speakers is estimated at up to about 500,000. It is the primary language of Kodavas, but a large portion of other communities and tribes in Kodagu also use Kodava Takk. It belongs to the Dravidian language family, and is related to and influenced by Tulu, Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil. A majority of the words are common between Kodava Takk and Beary bashe, a dialect which is a mixture of Tulu and Malayalam spoken by the Beary and Belchada community.show more
