Title: Review of 'Brahui, a Dravidian Language'
Submitter: Bijoy Das
Description: Read Review: http://linguistlist.org/issues/19/19-3870.html

What is the nature of early Brahui(pre-Islamic) written in Kharoshthi? Are there any palm leaf documents in Brahui? Are there any archaeological evidences like rosetta stone or copperplate inscriptions?

I am interested in the development of Brahui from Proto-Dravidian to modern form.

Thank you and regards.
