The Tamil language – characteristics and spread

Tamil belongs to the Dravidian language family as widely spoken in southern India; a classical language like Latin and ancient Greek, Tamil is still spoken by about 77 million speakers worldwide.

Tamil is written in the Tamil alphabet, a derivative of the Tamil-Brahmi alphabet. Inscriptions on pottery in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka date the alphabet back to around 600 BC. Tamil also has a literary history that goes back at least two millennia.

Tamil is an official language in India, where it is mainly spoken in the state of Tamil Nadu; Sri Lanka, where it is spoken by the Tamil minority; and Singapore, where it is spoken by most of the ethnic Indian population.

Tamil has been spoken in the north and east coasts of Sri Lanka since time immemorial and in the central highlands since the British colonial period, by part of the ethnic Indian minority in Malaysia and Singapore, and about one million people in South Africa.
