Languages Spoken in Tamil Nadu

Tamil is the official
language of Tamil Nadu
state and one of the 18
languages mentioned in
the eighth schedule of the
Indian constitution. Tamil
is one of the classical
languages of the world,
with a rich heritage of
literature. It is the most
widely spoken language in
Tamil Nadu. Besides Tamil
Nadu, Tamil is also
spoken by a number of
people in Sri Lanka,
Singapore, Mauritius and
Malaysia. The antiquity of
Tamil is comparable to
Sanskrit. Tamil is written
in a derivative of the
southern 'Brahmi' script.
The alphabet of Tamil is
unique (phonetic). That is,
in Tamil language letters
represent sounds, rather
than ideas, as is the case
in the 'Mandarin' language
of China.
Tamil is spoken by most
of the people while
around ten percent of the
people residing in Tamil
Nadu speak Telugu. Other
languages that are popular
in the state are Kannada,
Urdu and Malayalam
(though they are spoken
by much smaller
percentage). The influence
of the Malayalam language
is more prominent in the
west while people residing
mostly in the North
Eastern part, bordering
Karnataka, speak Kannada.
Besides the above-
mentioned languages,
English is also spoken as a
subsidiary language in
Tamil Nadu.
