The Remo online talking dictionary currently has approximately 4,100 entries and will be uploading more files in the near future. This is the first searchable online record of this important South Munda language of Orissa.
The Remo language, also known as Bondo or Remosam, is an Austro-Asiatic language of the Munda family spoken by an estimated 9,000 people in the Bondo Hills of Orissa province in eastern India. For Remo, as a tribal language, extinction is not imminent, but the pressures and influences of Oriya and other dominant languages are undeniable.
