Hello, I am a lay person in this field. I am an ENT Doctor and recently developed interest in alphabets of Kannada(dravidean language). My question is " are there any similarities between the alphabets of Kannada and alphabets of Latin/Roman. I know that there were trade relations between both. There are few Kannada words(not of Sanskrit origin) which resemblw Roman.For example Market. In kannada maruva(selling) katte(platform/place) means a platform for trade. So any research regarding the alphabets? Many thanks
