Kurumba is a Dravidian language of South India spoken by the tribal Kuruba Gowda subcastes of Jenu Kurumba and Kadu Kuruba (though quite different than the Kurumba spoken by the Betta Kuruba and Mullu Kuruba). These people are spread around the borders of three states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The language is also sometimes called as "Jenu Nudi" (Honey language). It has never been written, apart from recent efforts to write the language using Kannada script.
