Kannada Language

The Kannada language, also known as Kanrese or Kannana, is part of the Dravidian languages. It is the official language of the Karnatake state in southern Indian. The language is also spoken in many states that border Karnataka. It can be dated back to the 5th century while the first literary work titled “The Royal Road of Poets,” known as Kavirajamarga can be traced to the 9th century. After this, Pampas Bharata was released in 941 AD. It is believed that the Kannada literature was heavily influenced by Lingayat and the Haridasa.

The latest census count indicates that approximately 38 milion people speak Kannada as a first language. Another 9 to 10 million people speak it as their second language. In 2008, it became a classical language by the Indian government.

The Kannada language is one of the oldest of the Dravidian languages. Kannada script has evolved from different types of the Ashokan Brahmi script. It is close to the Telugu script as both came from the Kannarese (Karnataka) script. There are three stages of the languages as historically recorded. They are Old Kannada (450-1200), Middle Kannada (1200-1700) and Modern Kannada (1700-present).

The Kannada language follows the subject-object-verb word order, just as is done in other Dravidian languages. Verbs can be classified by person, number and gender. Like other Dravidian languages, Kannada used retroflex consonants, meaning that the sounds are pronounced as the tip of the tongue curls to the back of the roof of the mouth. There are voiced and voiceless aspirates in the Kannada language that come from the Indo-Aryan languages as well.

There are three popular dialects of the Kannada languages. They are the southern dialect, used mainly in Mysore and Bangalore, the northern, and the coastal. There are social varieties as well, which are classified as Brahman, non-Brahman and Dalit.
