Summary "Bemma Kurumba is a Dravidian language spoken in the Nilgiri and Waynad Hills of India. Annotated texts in Bemma Kurumba presents folktales and dialogues in this language, together with a grammatical sketch and a glossary. These interlinearised texts provide rich data for linguistic analysis, as well as some of the earliest published cultural information about a highly understudied ethnic group. The cultural information is presented, for the most part, by the Bemma Kurumbas themselves, who speak in their own native language about aspects of their lifestyle, spiritual beliefs, and social organization into clans"-- Provided by publisher
