Aka-Cari Language

The Cari (Kari) or Chariar language, Aka-Cari (Aka-Kari), is an extinct Great Andamanese language, of the Northern group, which was spoken by the Cari tribe of the Great Andamanese people.

In the 19th century the Cari triibe lived on the north coast of North Andaman and on Landfall and other nearby small islands. By 1994 the tribe was reduced to two women aged over 50 living with the other few surviving Great Andamanese on Strait Island.

Famous quotes containing the word language:

    The hypothesis I wish to advance is that ... the language of morality is in ... grave disorder.... What we possess, if this is true, are the fragments of a conceptual scheme, parts of which now lack those contexts from which their significance derived. We possess indeed simulacra of morality, we continue to use many of the key expressions. But we have—very largely if not entirely—lost our comprehension, both theoretical and practical, of morality.
    Alasdair Chalmers MacIntyre (b. 1929)
