About Sinhalese Language

Sinhalese language, also spelled as Singhalese or Cingalese, and is also called Sinhala, is an Indo-Aryan language, which is one of the two official languages of Sri Lanka. It was taken there by the colonists from northern India in the 5th century bc. Because of its isolation from the other Indo-Aryan tongues of the mainland of India, Sinhalese started developing along its independent lines. It was influenced by Pāli, which is considered to be the sacred language of the Sri Lankan Buddhists, and to a lesser degree by Sanskrit. Sinhalese language has borrowed a considerable number of words from the Dravidian languages, mostly from Tamil, which is also spoken in Sri Lanka.

Sinhalese is spoken by approximately 16 million Sinhalese people in Sri Lanka. It is also used as a second language by another 3 million people belonging to other ethnic groups in Sri Lanka, where it is one of the official and national languages, along with Tamil. There are also considerable number of Sinhalese speakers living in Singapore, Thailand, Canada and the United Arab Emirates.

Sinhalese is also known as Singhala – the latter version is closer to the pronunciation native name. The native name of the language is Siṃhāla, which comes from Sanskrit and could be translated as “lion-seizer”, “lion-killer” or “lion blood”, which refer to the legendary founder of the Sinhala people, Prince Vijaya, a descendant of Sinhabahu/Sīhabāhu (“Lion-arms”), the son of a princess of the Vanga Kingdom and a lion.

Sinhalese alphabet

The Sinhalese alphabets, which are the descendents of the Brahmi script, started to appear in Prakrit inscriptions during the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC. Both the alphabet and the language have changed considerably since then. The earliest surviving literature in Sinhalese dates from the 9th century AD.

The Sinhalese alphabet is also used to write Pali and Sanskrit in Sri Lanka.

Notable features

  • Type of writing system: syllabic alphabet.
  • Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines.
  • When they appear the the beginning of a syllable, vowels are written as independent letters.
  • Prenasalized consonants, such as mb, nd, ṇd and ng, are formed by special conjunct symbols that combine the stop and the homorganic nasal.
  • Conjunct symbols are used only when writing Sanskrit or Pali with the Sinhalese alphabet.
  • A subset of the letters, known as Eḷu hōḷdiya, was used to write classical Sinhalese (Eḷu). Many extra letters were added to write Sanskrit and Pali loanwords.
