Mappila dialect

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mappila dialect (formerly Moplah Malayalam) is a variety of Malayalam, a language with a distinct modern diglossia, spoken predominantly by the Muslim Mappila community of Kerala, southern India. The Mappila form can be classified as a regional dialect in northern Kerala, or as a class or occupational dialect of the Mappila community. The Mappila dialect can also called as a vernacular in general, or as a provincial patois, with the latter label being increasingly applicable in Colonial times. All the forms of the Malayalam language, including Mappila, are mutually intelligible.[2][3]

The Mappila form show some lexical (vocabulary) admixture from Arabic and Persian.[3][4]

The variety is also used by lower caste non-Muslims in northern Kerala, Muslims in Dakshina Kannada, and different Mappila migrant communities in South East Asia.[5]
