classification[edit]

Just a heads up: I converted the classification at Dravidian languages to a cladogram, but it had gotten messed up and I may have introduced new errors when I corrected the old ones. If anyone here knows the source used for that section, it might be worth double checking. Unless there's a new consensus in the lit? The classification should at least be more legible now. kwami (talk) 09:06, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

You removed a source (Encyclopædia Britannica) when you converted it into a cladogram. If you haven't already added it back, you can find it in the diff. Thanks for your work.--Joshua Issac (talk) 15:42, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Bharia[edit]

Not sure how active this project is...

Ethnologue lists "Bharia" as unclassified Dravidian. It's currently the language with the largest number of speakers (per E16) which we do not have an article on, or at least have merged into another language. But I'm having a hard time confirming it actually exists, rather than just being a name in the census data that Eth. picked up on and listed as unclassified because they had no source for classification. The Bharia are a "semi-Dravidian" tribe who were reported to speak Hindi, but that's as much as I can tell. They are also supposed to be northern Dravidian, so if that's real (rather than, say, northern Gondi) that would be potentially important for Dravidian as a whole. Anyone know? (They're not mentioned in Krishnamurti.) — kwami (talk) 04:03, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
