PATH-BREAKING: The Kodava script devised by German multi-linguist, Gregg M. Cox 



Kodavas and Kodava-related issues have been in the news. Be it inventing a new script for the Kodava language or determining the origin of the Kodavas through DNA tests. Reactions, barring a few individuals and organisations, have been few in comparison with the slew of write-ups that have appeared in the media.

Efforts were made in the past by some to devise a script for the Kodava language. They include script by the late Iychettira Muthanna, who has authored books in Kodava, Kannada and English. But, a reluctant Kodava society did not pay much heed to it.

The “Coorgi-Cox Alphabet,” now devised by a German multi-linguist, Gregg M. Cox, is in the news in Kodagu, of late. The 34 alphabets and a double vowel in addition, make an interesting sight. How Dr. Cox, who speaks 64 languages and whose name has found a mention in the Guinness Book of Records, formulated the alphabets, is now known to many. A few say Dr. Cox must be complimented for his efforts to bring out photographs, compact discs and even introducing a contest to popularise the script at his own cost.

    He's not a rel Doctor.. he received an honorary doctorate. Also, he's NOT German, he's American. He was born in Coos bay, Oregon!

    I'd venture to say nearly everything written about Cox was written by Cox. I've met him and judging by my impressions from that meeting, his greatest accomplishment is pulling the wool over a lot of eyes.
