Though Tulu has an ancient script, it is generally referred to as a language without script. This is because, the script is totally unknown among its own people. It has been known only among the Tulu brahmins in olden days, who mainly used it for maintaining the Sanskrit Mantras, in Astrology and in Medicinal reference books, in which these brahmins where revered in the entire west-coast of India. However, recent researches have revealed that, Tulu has got a number of ancient books with scholarly written literature. Unfortunately most of them are now extinct that are written in Tulu script. But currently, a few periodicals published in Tulu language and books written now and then in Tulu and most of them use Kannada script.
