Malayalam Language

The Malayalam language is one of the major languages of India. It is spoken mainly in the state of Kerala and by a significant number of people in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka states. Malayalam, like many other Indian languages, has a rich and deep literary tradition, with the earliest Malayalam texts dating back to the 9th century. The language uses both Latin and Arabic scripts for writing, even though only one may be used when writing certain words.
