India is one of the few countries in the world with a wide diversity of languages spoken and cultures within its geographical area. Every state, region, and district have their own peculiarities of languages, dialects, food, clothes, culture and rituals. In this article, we will discuss about Telugu- a language spoken in the Southern part of India.

Primarily spoken in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh, it is a Central Dravidian language. It is also the official language of Yanam District in Pondicherry. It is one of the 22 scheduled languages of India. Among all the Dravidian languages, this language is the most widely spoken one. It is the third most spoken language in the Indian sub-continent after Hindi and Bengali.

In 2008, it attained the status of being called a classical language honored by the Indian government. Today it is considered a classical language just like Sanskrit, Kannada and Tamil.

Outside Andhra Pradesh, you can find it being spoken in various other Indian states as well such as Karnataka, Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Chattisgarh. It has also been taken outside India by its Diaspora. You can find language speakers in Canada, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, the UK, Bahrain, Fiji and various other nations. In the USA, you can find a large number of language speakers especially in Silicon Valley.

Sanskrit influence on Telugu

The earliest known inscriptions containing its words date back to 400 BC which appeared on coins. During the 11th century, it flourished as a literary and poetical language.

Written in a Brahmic alphabet, This language was extensively influenced by Sanskrit language. No other language has influenced it as much as Sanskrit has. It's vocabulary has borrowed heavily from Sanskrit. Even the pronunciation of some vowels and consonants is done the way it is done in Sanskrit language.

Other influences

In the late 17th century, as Muslim rule established in Hyderabad, this language also got influenced by Arabic and Persian languages. Arabic influence can be easily seen in the language spoken and literature written especially in the Hyderabad region, the capital of Andhra Pradesh. Hence language varies depending upon region to region.

Telugu alphabets & dialects

It's alphabet consists of 16 vowels, 41 consonants and 3 vowel modifiers. There are various dialects in the language such as Kamathi, Berad, Dasari, Telangana, Dommara, Kandula, Prakasam, Rayalaseema, Srikakulam, Komtao and many more. If you move towards Tamil Nadu, you will find that it has different dialects there namely Vellore, Madras Telugu, Coimbatore and more. Standard Telugu known as “Shudda Telugu” is mostly spoken in Andhra Pradesh.

Language speakers are in huge numbers in India and all over the world. If you want to target its speakers, you need to communicate with them in the same language. Whenever you seek translations, make sure to do your research and choose a highly reliable and professional translation agency.The translation company must guarantee accurate.
