Whats this all about?

This is not a dictionary that will give you the exact meaning of Tamil words, instead this is more of a research to identify Tamil words and sounds with their meanings. Other many derived  new languages doesn’t have this unique feature that Tamil is having. Mistakes will be there in my way of analysis so  your comments and views are always welcome.


It all started when someone in an online forum made fun of Tamil’s lack of sounds and from that day I started reading about Tamil old literature like Purananooru, Kalithokai, ThiruKural, Silappathikaaram etc… and tried to get the meanings they portray, but with difficulties and not satisfied with meanings of some old words I started collecting similar sounding words comparing them, I found perfect relations between similar sounding words.

It started to unveil, ka= gaining, pa=added up with, tha=keeping with etc… and Eureka. Its all interesting, Amazing and Godly.


My view on ancient Tamil language has completely changed, it seems to me that this language was invented by some expert initially thousands of years back and spread through out the world and contributed to the growth of many other proto languages.

The Tamils preserved its originality for generations.


I may be wrong due to my limited knowledge, i will be glad if readers of this blog corrects me or help me understand things better, supporting me in my endeavor.

    Really amazed by the effort you had made. It’s a great deal of effort but it should spread to the public faster. Ways are to add a section to include tamil names for kids from your researched work. Since there might be many to search for the same there will be more visits & veneration to the language. Appreciate the initial efforts

  4. உங்கள் ஊக்கம் அளிக்கும் கருத்துக்களுக்கு நன்றி.

  9. Great Work. Best wishes. I have a query. How do you spell “ச” ? Is it “cha” or “sa” ? I use it in both ways. Then what is the pronunciation of “ஸ” ? Which means there was no sa before “ஸ”.

    Etymology has always fascinated me. If only you could find a publisher and print it… A child should learn etymology while learning tamil and english alphabets… Instead of memorising blindly… Adults can only do research and marvel at our ancestore but a child can exponentially take it further in understanding, expressing, etc… Awessome work…
