Abstract:

Kui is a nonliterary tribal language spoken by more than six hundred
thousand people in the valley of the river Mahanadi in the Indian state of
Orissa and in some areas of the neighboring Andhra Pradesh state. Most Kui
speakers are hunters, fishermen and collectors. Some of them, however,
practise agriculture and some work as plantation labourers in Assam and
West Bengal.

The Kui language belongs to the northern group of the Dravidian language
family. Its speakers call themselves kui (i.e. 'highlanders'), while their
neighbors call them kondho. Many of the Kui people are bilingual, their
second language being Oriya. This fact accounts for the strong Oriya
influence on Kui. In the past some Kui primers were published in the Roman
and Oriya script, but they didn't become popular, and the language is still
unwritten. The present book contains a sketch of Kui phonetics and
morphology (written in Russian).
