Kadodi (Devanagari:कादोडी बोली), or Samvedi (Devanagari:सामवेदी बोली), is the language spoken by the Kupari community in Vasai, Maharashtra, India. It is also called Samvedic. It may be a divergent dialect of Konkani, with Marathi and Gujarati influence.

A typical phrase in English "Where are you going?" sounds same as when you read "Tu Kade Sallo?" .For "How are you?" Sound as "Tu koho ha?"

One of the famous phrases used in this dialect is "Tua bapa kaa jaate", meaning, "What difference does it make to you"?
