Tholkaappiyam and Contemporary Language Change in Tamil

Keywords: Tamil grammar, Tolkappiyam, Sangam literature, Nannul

Abstract

The grammar of a language is subject to change as language change occurs. For instance, the grammar explained by Nannul differs from that of Tholkaappiyam, although both are Tamil grammar treatises. The aim of this article is to explore the verses of Tholkaappiyam that have become obsolete grammar rules. The study is limited to the Eluthatikaram chapter of tholkaappiyam.
