The element of Tamil Brahmins which distinctly identified them in any goup is the Brahmin Tamil, which was musical to the ears and melodious to hear. But nowadays we rarely find any Tamil Brahmin speaking the Brahmin Tamil? Where went the language? Why TBs are not speaking the language? Especially the younger generation don't speak Brahmin Tamil at all. Only those born during the 70s and earlier are using the Brahmin Tamil. Brahmin Tamil is becoming extinct. Should we not revive the language? Should we not teach our children to speak the Brahmin language at least with other Tamil Brahmins? After the Brahmin Tamil is the most refined of all Tamil dialects, very sweet to hear. Where have gone the usage of such words like "Aaham for house, Avaa aathule, Ivaa aathule, Naazhi ayiduthu, Jalam, Vandhela? Eduthundela? etc..".
