Tulu, or Tuluvu

Resource Toolbox

is the ancient and proper dialect of the long narrow tract of land now called Canara, situated westward of Mysore, between the range of the Western Ghauts and the ocean. Owing to the long subjection of Canara to Karriata princes, the Karnata or Canarese language is now chiefly spoken by the higher classes in the province, while the Tulu still continues the vernacular of the common people, especially in South Canlara. In idiom and structure it closely resembles the Malayalim language, and it is written in the same characters. In 1834 a missionary station was established by the German Missionary Society at Mangalore, the capital of Canara. In 1844 a translation of the New Test. was made, which was published in 1852. See Bible of Every Land, p. 144. (B. P.)
