HO LANGUAGE

Ho (also known as Bihar Ho and Lanka Kol) is a Munda language of the Austro-Asiatic language family spoken primarily in India by about 3,803,126 people (0.103% of India’s population) per the 2001 census. It is spoken by the Ho people. It is written with the Devanagari and the Warang Chiti scripts. The latter script was invented by pandit Dr. Lako Bodra.

Ho is an Munda language spoken by over one million people in Eastern India. Although its use is not considered to be in serious decline, the language is under-documented and therefore little known to the outside world. Few native Ho speakers read or write their language, and the absence of the alphabet in which Ho is written, known as “Warang Chiti”, from computer fonts has effectively excluded Ho speakers from the digital age.
