Yerukula is a Dravidian language spoken by about 70,000
people in parts of Andhra Pradesh in India. The language
is also known as Kurru basha or Kulavatha and is closely
related to Ravula and Irula, and more distantly related to
Tamil. The Yerukula people call themselves Kurru:
the name Yerukula comes from their women’s traditional
profession of fortune telling (eruka cheputa).
This is a script for Yerukula devised by Professor Prasanna Sree.
