Badaga (Kannada: ಬಡಗ) is a southern Dravidian language spoken by approximately 135,000 people in the Nilgiri Hills of Tamil Nadu. It is known for its retroflex vowels. It has similarities with neighbouring Kannada language, and has now been identified as an independent language by a French linguistic scholar, Christiane Pilot-Raichoor. The word Badaga, meaning "northerner", refers to the Badaga language as well as the Badaga indigenous people who speak it.
