            A Project of universal significance on Tamil Language

Dr. G. John Samuel


Although there are many etymological dictionaries for various Indian and European languages, the present etymological dictionary proposed by the Government of Tamil Nadu is unique in its scope, methodology and execution. Like the Dravidian Etymological Dictionary which was very meticulously prepared by two great scholars Prof. Thomas Burrow of Oxford and Prof. M.B. Emeneau of California Berkley University, the present etymological dictionary will trace the etymology of various Tamil lexical items and their semantic content in different languages. But the uniqueness of the Tamilnadu Govt.’s Etymological dictionary is that it deals with two different families of languages which belong to totally different geographical areas and spoken by different ethnic groups of different origins. The common shared features, and genetic relationship among them are very less - the commonness arose mainly out of constant commercial and cultural contacts existed in different ages from the pre-historic period to the present day of science and technology.

This dictionary will also serve as basic refence material for the study of the external history of the Tamils which is almost a neglected area of academic pursuit due to lack of source material. Being a very potential sea - faring race of the world, Tamils had extensive commercial contact with various countries through large number of port cities in many parts of Tamilnadu, which include Pūmpukār of the ancient Chola empire, the Koṟkai of the Pandia kingdom, the Toṇṭi of the Chera dynasty and Māmallapuram of Toṇṭai maṇṭalam. This dictionary will be an authentic source to international scholars to study the external history of the ancient Tamils, their trade routes and their status in the history of the globe.

We hope that the expert committee comprising of good native and foreign scholars will draft all details regarding the execution of the project. A word corpus consisting of all the Tamil words found in all the existing and non – existing languages of the world from the historic past to the present day should be prepared with meticulous care with the support of scholars belonging to various linguistic groups. This word corpus should be carefully analysed to see whether the similarities existing among them are only accidental or they are real cognates. All accidental similarities should be avoided. The data should be presented both diachronically and synchronically using comparative methodology wherever necessary. All historical links should be presented in each occurrence in different languages. People who can read ancient Coptic, and other rare documents should be employed so that no single data is left out.

It is our fond hope that the Tamil words found in Indo-European languages should be analysed from the perspective of historical principles. The approximate period of entry of each word with the social background and the changes that took place in the formal lexical structure and semantic content through the ages should be clearly indicated. There may be semantic expansion, or specification, or elevation or degradation and some times such words may become archaic or completely extinct. All this should be specifically marked since this will provide good data for excellent studies in future on the external history of our mother tongue. 

As already mentioned Indio - European is a very complicated vast area of study with more than ten substratum. Consequently, it may be very difficult to handle the enormous data simultaneously in a single work. For the sake of presenting the data with clarity and handle the project efficiently, it is better to deal with each substratum as a separate family. Some says,  Indo-Aryan is a substratum of Indo-European and the substratum Indo-Aryan is spoken approximately by 70% of people in India and considerable number of Sinhalese of Sri Lanka. But this is only a tentative statistics by our linguists. This may vary when we take into account. Marathi, Sindhi and few other languages which share close genetic relationship with the Dravidian family of languages. It may be around less than 50% when we undertake good field research. The first part of our dictionary can deal with Tamil and Indo - Aryan family and the subsequent parts can deal with Indo - Iranian, Celtic, Germanic, Armenian, Hellenic and so on.

There shall be few other volumes which can deal with Ural - Atlaic family comprising of Japanese, Korean, Hungarian etc. Separate parts can be allotted to present Tamil and African languages such as Kanōri etc. and Tamil and Mangoloid group. The span of time for the preparation of these volumes may be more than what is envisaged and the budget may be little more heavy; But it is worth doing and worth spending for a great cause which has no parallel under the vast sky. This will transform our mother tongue as               வானம் அளந்த தமிழ்  and  வையகம் அளந்த தமிழ். All glory on this great project go to our Hon'ble Chief Minister who has dedicated himself to bring global status to our mother tongue, our hoary culture and our society.
