Telugu is a Dravidian language (South-Central Dravidian languages) primarily spoken in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, where it is the official language. Including non-native speakers it is the most spoken Dravidian language, the third most spoken language in India after Hindi and Bengali, and one of the twenty-two official languages of the Republic of India. It is spoken among a diaspora population in the USA, Malaysia, Mauritius, South Africa, Ireland, Fiji, Réunion, Trinidad and the UK among other countries around the world. Extant works in Carnatic music, particularly the compositions of the present era (post 15th century), were written mostly in the then, highly-sanskritized Telugu.

1. The Telugu language, mainly spoken in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is a Dravidian language that evolved from Tamil, however, much of its higher vocabulary is borrowed from Sanskrit. To someone who cannot read the script used to write the Telugu language, it will resemble a series of circles and semi-circles with lines and dots around them.

2. A person who natively speaks the Telugu language. Most people from Andhra Pradesh are a homogenized mix of South Indians (Dravidian people) and North Indians (Indo-Iranian people), however, it is probable that a person from Andhra Pradesh will have more Dravidian blood than Indo-Iranian blood.

It's one of the most beautiful languages in India and is spoken by Andhrites (people of Andhra Pradesh). Some of the dickheads here either don't know Telugu or are suckers. Anyway, Telugu is a really nice language when spoken the right way with the right emphasis for each letter. It can also sound soft (unless the voice is really rough or hoarse) and it can really convey many emotions 'coz it's got a lot of vocabulary as well. I'm proud to be an Andhrite. xD
