Ho (also known as Bihar Ho and Lanka Kol) is a Munda language of the Austroasiatic language family spoken primarily in India by about 1.04 million people (0.103% of India's population) per the 2001 census. It is spoken by the Ho people. It is written with the Ol Chiki, Devanagari and the Varang Kshiti scripts. The latter script was invented by pandit Dr. Lako Bodra.

Distribution[edit]

The largest concentrations of Ho speakers are in East Singhbhum district, southern Jharkhand, and in Mayurbhanj district and Keonjhar district, northern Odisha. Ho is close to Mundari, although the southern Ho dialects (e.g., Mayurbhanj) are less similar to Mundari than the Jharkhand dialects to the north are (Anderson 2008:196).
