Tirukkural Wordlists
  The wordlists have been created by indexing the text of Kural, sorting the words in the required dictionary order and then splitting them into individual files. The text of Kural used for data entry has a version where words are split according to established conventions. This being the case, many of the words may have starting letters which are really part of the previous word. No effort has been made to identify such situations. Typically, many words starting with "nna", "ya", "zha", "lla" "rra" and "na(*)" may not be proper words, but one can discern the word correctly with some experience.

  The main reason for this exercise is to show the fine text processing capabilities of the IITM software where concordances and indexing can be accomplished. Wordlists are always of interest to Linguistic scholars and perhaps for the first time, the wordlist for Kural is being made available in Tamil script on the web. One would have seen many lists giving only the first words of the couplets but here nearly 6000 words have been included.

  The viewer may want to do a frequency analysis of the words. This could be done for instance by writing a utility in PERL. We have done this and a separate page is available giving the results of the analysis.

Acharya Logo
The statue of Saint Tiruvalluvar greets visitors at Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of India. The 133 feet tall statue stands next to Vivekananda Memorial, a temple for meditation. The height of 133 feet signifies the 133 "Adhikarams". The pedastal measures 38 feet in height, representing the 38 "Adhikarams" of the first part of Kural "Aram".
