Preface

Barkur is a historically important small town situated in Udipi taluk of South Kanara district in coastal Mysore. It is about 45 miles north of Mangalore and isolated from the Tulu-speaking area of the district by two rivers (on which bridges have been constructed very recently). It is surrounded on all the four sides by Kannada-speaking people.

Commercially Barkur is more closely linked with Coonda-poor, one of the major Kannada-speaking towns in the district, than with Mangalore or Udipi.

Out of the whole population of the area, except a small number of Konkani-speakers, all—irrespective of different communities to which they belong—are native speakers of Kannada.

The name Barkur Kannada is given to this dialect as it is spoken in BARKUR.

The present analysis is based on the material collected from Shri B. Chandrashekhara Bhat, B. Sc., who belongs to the community of Shivalli Brahmins at Barkur. Assistance was also received from his father, Shri Subraya Bhat and his elder brother, Shri Shripati Bhat.

The field work was carried out during the months of April and May 1967, under the Linguistic Survey Project of Deccan College, Poona.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. S. M. Katre, Director, Deccan College, Dr. A. M. Ghatage, Director, Centre of Advanced Study in Linguistics, Poona for their help and encouragement, to Dr. H. S. Biligiri, to Dr. D. N. Shankar Bhat for their valuable guidance throughout the preparation of this work and to my informant, Shri Chandrashekhara Bhat and the members of his family for their co-operation during the field work.
