Telegu is one of the four classical languages of India. It is a South-Central Dravidian language mostly spoken in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, where it is the official language. The Telegu script is derived from the Brahmi script of the Mauryan Empire. Telugu has been subjected to prolonged, enormous influence from Sanskrit and also from the Prakrits, the spoken Indo-Aryan languages of medieval North India. Consequently, the vocabulary of Telugu is heavily Indo-Aryan.
Etymology of Telegu Language
The etymology of Telegu is not known for certain. It is explained as being derived from trilinga, as in Trilinga Desa, “the country of the three lingas”. According to a Hindu legend, Trilinga Desa is the land in between three Shiva temples namely Kaleshwaram, Srisailam and Draksharamam. Trilinga Desa forms the traditional boundaries of the Telegu region. The people who lived in these regions were also referred to as Telaga Caste seems to have been derived from Trilinga Desam. Other forms of the word, such as Telunga, Telinga, Telangana and Tenunga were also seen. It is also said that Trilinga, in the form “Triliggon” occurs in Ptolemy as the name of a locality to the east of the Ganga River.
Gender in Telegu Language
Telugu pronouns follow the systems for gender and respect also found in other Indian languages. The second person plural is used in addressing someone with respect, and there are also respectful third personal pronouns pertaining to both genders. A specialty of the Telegu language, however, is that the third person non-respectful feminine is used to refer to animals and objects, and there is no special neuter gender that is used.
