In a standard sentence, therefore, the order is usually subject—object—verb SOV , but object—subject—verb is also common. Tamil is a null-subject language. Not all Tamil sentences have subjects, verbs and objects. The elements that are present, however, must follow the SOV order. Tamil does not have an equivalent for the word is; the word is included in the translations only to convey the meaning.
The verb to have in the meaning "to possess" is not translated directly, either. To say "I have a horse" in Tamil, a construction equivalent to "There is a horse to me" or "There exists a horse to me", is used. Tamil lacks relative pronouns , but their meaning is conveyed by relative participle constructions, built using agglutination.
For example, the English sentence "Call the boy who learned the lesson" is said in Tamil like "That-lesson-learned-boy call". Standard Sanskrit algorithms and riders cover mathematical operations such as numerical series, equations, graphics, etc.
Sanskrit script Devanagari is phonetic, not spelling based like English. This phonetic transcription property of Sanskrit is useful if phonetic instructions are fed to a computer or robot. The position number system is the basis of computations. Europe is said to have used Roman numerals before they knew about the Indian decimal system and use of zero.
However, it is difficult to outline even the simplest arithmetical operation like addition using Roman numerals. The digital computer uses a binary positional system through combinations of only two digits, viz. The numerical operations are similar to the standard decimal system.
Reference to such binary combinations appears through Sanskrit texts on Chandas or poetic meters by Pingalacharya. The 3, 4, 6 or 8 lettered ganas aksharaganah generate the same sequence of laghu 0 and guru 1 combinations as in modern digital computers. In short, the characteristics of Sanskrit that attracted the attention of computer scientists are: 1 Well knit syntactic and semantic structure of Sanskrit 2 Positional independence of words in a sentence 3 Low phonetic transcription for audio input and binary phonetic classification 0,1 of poetic meter 4 Well defined rules of grammar, phrasing and synthesis The wide base of linguistics numerical algorithms, logic etc.
Adapted from the importance of Sanskrit in computer science, by Dr Chandragupta s Varnekar, Nagpur university. Published in Hindu Youth magazine,London. It contains nearly sutras or rules. He never repeated any sutra. Hunter, the grammarian says, It stands supreme among the grammars of the world alike for its precision of statement and for its thorough analysis of the roots of the language and the formative principle of words.
A popular saying in India even declares the study of the Mahabhasya of Patanjali as equal to the ruling of a kingdom. Panini has listed about activities and verb roots related to different aspects of these activities. In Sanskrit nearly all the nouns are derived from verbs by adding some prefixes or some suffixes. All the irrational beings and inanimate objects fall under the "lower class". Examples could be animals, birds, plants and things.
The grammatical gender of Tamil nouns corresponds to their natural sex. Nouns in Tamil have two numbers, singular and plural.
Masculine and Feminine genders are only applicable to "higher class" nouns. Even though the genders of animals are marked in a sentence Eg: Thus there are five genders in Tamil.
It is summarized in the table below. These demonstrative particles display deictic properties.
Using these particles demonstrative pronouns are derived. The same set of pronouns is also used as personal pronouns in 3rd person. First person plural pronouns in Tamil, distinguish between inclusive and exclusive we. In Tamil, plural terminators are used for honorific addressing. It could be noted in both 2nd and 3rd persons. There are unique personal pronouns available for first and second persons while demonstrative pronouns are used in place of personal pronouns as well.
Like Tamil nouns, Tamil verbs are also inflected through the use of suffixes. The suffixes to indicate tenses and voice are formed from grammatical particles , which are added to the stem.
The chart below outlines the most common set of suffixes used to conjugate for person and tense, but different groups of Tamil verbs may use other sets of suffixes or have irregularities.
Tamil has three simple tenses - past, present, and future - indicated by simple suffixes, and a series of perfects, indicated by compound suffixes. Mood is implicit in Tamil, and is normally reflected by the same morphemes which mark tense categories.
These signal whether the happening spoken of in the verb is unreal, possible, potential, or real. Tamil has two voices. The first - used in the example above - indicates that the subject of the sentence undergoes or is the object of the action named by the verb stem, and the second indicates that the subject of the sentence directs the action referred to by the verb stem. These voices are not equivalent to the notions of transitivity or causation , or to the active - passive or reflexive-nonreflexive division of voices found in Indo-European languages.
Tamil has no articles. Definiteness and indefiniteness are either indicated by special grammatical devices, such as using the number "one" as an indefinite article, or by the context.
In the first person plural, Tamil makes a distinction between inclusive pronouns that include the listener and exclusive pronouns that do not. Tamil does not distinguish between adjectives and adverbs - both fall under the category uriccol.
Verb auxiliaries are used to indicate attitude , a grammatical category which shows the state of mind of the speaker, and his attitude about the event spoken of in the verb. Common attitudes include pejorative opinion , antipathy , relief felt at the conclusion of an unpleasant event or period, and unhappiness at or apprehension about the eventual result of a past or continuing event.
Except in poetry, the subject precedes the object, and the verb concludes the sentence. In a standard sentence, therefore, the order is usually subject—object—verb SOV , but object—subject—verb is also common. Tamil is a null-subject language.
