Desiya (dso-dso) = 3 (Wider communication). Trade language by tribal communities in Odisha state.

E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24 has two languages Desiya [dso] and Adivasi Oriya [ort]. These names simply divide the speakers of the same language along a state border ( Khageswar Mahapatra 1992 , Mahapatra, B. P. 2002 , Gustafsson, Uwe 1989 ) leaving one of the entries spurious. I wish to thank Felix Rao for clarifying the status of these two entries to me. See also: Kotia-Adivasi Oriya-Desiya [ort].
