So I was feeling anxious so I took a walk outside and on my way back there was a group of Arabic speaking men walking on the other side of the road and one of them yelled what sounded like أين, أين which I think meant “where where?” at a car slowly driving past them and then he jumped on the car and the car drove off. Happy to get some unexpected listening practice and understand something!
Hi! Yes, I was talking about the original post. I found your addition interesting and agree with it. Thank you for messaging me!
The History of The Modern Tamil Script (Part-1)
The Tolkāppiyam is a comprehensive grammar on Tamil as well as the oldest text of literature found in the language. It’s written on a very thin palm leaf with ink.
This was most likely written in the Tamil-Brahmi script.
The Tamil-Brahmi script emerged in South India and other places (given below) from the Brahmic script.
The language which it wrote is called Old Tamil.
The Brahmic script also gave rise to other Indian language-scripts such as Marathi, Hindi, Telugu etc.
This script was used from roughly the beginning of the BCE to the 4th Century BCE.
The vaṭṭeḻuttu script emerged from Tamil-Brahmi around 4th Century AD and stayed in its same form till the 10th AD.
It has a sister script called the ‘Grantha’ which has now been transformed into modern Malyalam.
The Vaṭṭeḻuttu script fell out and was replaced by something similar. One of the differences between them was that vaṭṭeḻuttu has a more cursive approach in writing the alphabet then the Modern Tamil Script.
I hope this post was correct, please correct me if I was wrong anywhere. Part-2 coming whenever it’s ready :)
