Kannada Kurumba language is a Dravidian language spoken by the tribal Kuruba Gowda subcastes of Jenu Kuruba, Kadu Kuruba and Betta Kuruba of South India. These people are spread around the borders of three states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The language is also sometimes called as “Jenu Nudi”(Honey language). The language has never been written, apart from recent efforts to write the language using Kannada script. It is considered as a dialect of Kannada with Tamil and Malayalam words interspread.
