The Bonda language, also known as Bondo or Remo, is the Austroasiatic language spoken by the Bonda people of India.


The Bonda language belongs to the Southern subgroup of the Munda branch of the Austroasiatic language family. It is most closely related to the Gutob language.[1]


The Remo language can be divided into two varieties, Plains and Hill (Anderson 2008:557).
