Apart from these three major forms, mention can be made of Bangalore Kannada-spoken in and areas around Bangalore, Havigannada- spoken by the Havyaka Brahmin communities among North Canara, South Canara, Udupi and Shimoga districts, Bellary Kannada- spoken in Bellary district, Gulbarga Kannada- spoken in Gulgarga division, Kumta Kannada- spoken in Kumta area, Kunda Kannada – spoken in Kundapura area, Are bhashe- spoken in Sullia region of South Canara, Belagavi Kannada –spoken in Belgaum region, Soliga Kannada – spoken among Soliga communities of Nilgiri region, Badaga Kannada- spoken among Badagas of Nilgiri region and Kodava- spoken in The Coorg district.



A Mangalorean would say, “Namma bali adu untu”, a Mysorean would say,”Namm taava adu aithe” and a Dharwad Kannadiga would say, “Namm paiki adu aithri”- in writing we write it as “Namma hathra ide”, literally meaning- “We have it with us.” Though Kannada is spoken in various forms the basic meaning is the same and the different words used are usually the synonyms.

The slang form in Kannada is unique too. Now a day some new words have been coined or rather imbibed into Kannada which has a different meaning in another language. Machha, (brother-in-law in Tamil), Mama (Uncle) and Magaa (Son) are the words used to call your close friends. Kuithane (he cuts) means he is too boring.


A Kannada speaker from Belgaum tends to use more words from Marathi and Hindi in his language because he comes from a place which was once ruled under the Bombay presidency. One from Gulbarga often uses words of Urdu origin in his speaking of Kannada. A Mangalorean while conversing often mixes his Kannada with the local language of Tulu. All of these forms of spoken Kannada have a uniqueness of their own, typical to themselves. The words, the style and the accent all change from one region to the other, yet it is accepted as one language - KANNADA.
