Abstract

Structural Linguistics explains that the words of any language have paradigmatic and syntagmatic relations between them. Tolkappiyar seems to have known about this relationship in his time. This article establishes that Tolkappiyar utilized this knowledge of two types of relations between words in providing solutions to the semantic ambiguity of Polysemy and Homonymy words in Tamil.
