Research on Badaga

I found this interesting article on the net. Is it not fascinating that so much research has been done on our language ?

Prof.Peter.L says 'Badaga is a Southern Dravidian Language (Tamil-Kannada branch) spoken by approximately 250,000[NOW ABOUT 500,000] people in the Nilgiris hills in Southern India. There are several dialects, only the most conservative having the complete set of contrasts illustrated here.
Badaga has five vowels /i e a o u/ , all of which can be contrastively half and fully retroflexed.'

Bellie Jayaprakash adds:
       ha:alu           ha:allu  
         'milk'              'waste[d]'
