Kannada includes characters for the Kannada and Tulu languages.
The Kannada language is almost as old as Tamil and has been spoken for about 2,000 years. The Kannada writing system has been in use for about the last 1,500 years. Kannada is mainly spoken in Karnataka in India and to a lesser extent in the neighboring states. Initially the area of the Kannada speech extended much further to the north than present Karnataka but was pushed back by the Aryan Marathi. The initial creation of the Kannada language is similar to the other Dravidian languages, particularly Tamil and Telugu. Kannada has been highly inﬂuenced by Sanskrit vocabulary and literary styles.
