Language name: Arebhashe or Gowda Kannada is a dialect of the Kannada language
Description: Arebhashe or Gowda Kannada is a dialect of the Kannada language, particularly, spoken by the people belonging to ‘Gowda’ community (among Hindus) who are the natives of Madikeri, Somwarpet, Bhagamandala and Kushalanagara of Kodagu district and Sullia of Dakshina Kannada. It is also spoken by eastern parts of Kasaragod district of Kerala state. In Sullia Taluk, as the majority of the population belongs to Gowda community, most of others also generally communicate in the same dialect. More than half of the total population in Madikeri taluk consist of Are Bhashe Gowdas. Around 300,000 people in this region speak this dialect . It is a 'half-tongue',(Are= half,Bhashe= speech)which is actually an admixture of Tulu, Kodava takk and Kannada. Hence Arebhashe pronunciation is somewhat distinct from Kannada (Example: hege in Kannada; henge in Arebhashe for 'How' in English. "aayithu" in kannada is "aath" in are_bashe for 'ok' in English.). It is written in the Kannada script.

Previous: Arebica or arabica was a variant of the Perso-Arabic script used to write the Bosnian language It was used mainly between the 15th and 19th centuries Before WWI there were unsuccessful efforts by Muslims to officially adopt Arebica as the third alphabet for Bosnian alongside Latin and Cyrillic The last book printed in the script was in 1941
