Considered as one of the oldest languages in India, Kannada has its roots sunk into history way beyond the boundaries of the Indian subcontinent. Rev Ferdinand Kittel, a renowned missionary and lexicographer was the first and only foreigner to have compiled a Kannada to English dictionary in 1894. Also having authored books on Kannada grammar and a Kannada newspaper, 'Mangalooru Samachara', his contribution to the Kannada language remains monumental till date.
