Tolkappiyam Multi Script Analyzable

The Tolkappiyam is put in spreadsheet in Baraha Transliteration software notation. This enables reading in most Bharath scripts. Different types of filters and sorts are possible to analyze the document. I consider Tolkappiyars most significant contribution is the concept of life being provided to lifeless elements of language. the addition of [a] prefix to [kShara] results in [akShara]. [ak] to [Shara] also does the same.

I can see only a condensed spread sheet, but no letters. Could you please tell how to find the writings in it?

1 A spreadsheet file was uploaded at scribd website - the web site automatically converts it different for display at web site. you can down load the file as a PDF file. AND COPY THE MATERIAL COLUMN BY COLUMN INTO YOUR OWN SPREADSHEET. YOU NEED TO OBTAIN BARAHA TRANSLITERATION SOFTWARE THAT WILL INSTALL NEEDED FONTS TO DISPLAY IN DIFFERENT SCRIPTS. Suggested spreadsheet Calc from openoffice dot org

WHEN YOU RECONSTITUTE THE SPREADSHEETS It is in the [tolkAppiyam] word list mode. In this mode
a list of all the words in the document can be seen in the columns NUMBERED

18 word - Baraha©
19 word - tamizh script
20 word - telugu script
21 word- kannada script
22 word - devanagari

The column

3 Baraha sort

has numbers 1 to 18003

The contents of the PDF file should be copied into a spreadsheet carefully and certain steps detailed below
taken for your own study and analysis..

After transferring to a spreadsheet you can read [tolkAppiyam] as you would a simple text document in
multiple language scripts. And also study and analyze the document using the full power of spreadsheet
software in a professional and scholarly manner.

2 The spreadsheet has [tolkAppiyam] in the following scripts
Baraha© Roman letter transliteration
[tamizh]
[telugu]
[kannaDa]
[devanagari]

3 You can use Baraha© transliteration software from Baraha - Free Indian Language Software - Typing Software, Text Editor Software and Fonts for Kannada, Konkani, Tulu, Hindi, Marathi, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Gujarati, Punjabi, Bengali, Assamese, and Oriya languages
to generate tamizh] language script from Baraha© Roman letter transliteration script for [tamizh]

4 The generated script can be easily converted into scripts of most Bharath India languages by a simple command

5 This spreadsheet enables word by word statistical analysis of the [tolkAppiyam]

6 [tamizh] language can thus be studied easily and compared with other languages in a scholarly manner

7 [tolkAppiyam] in this spread sheet can be read and studied in the normal left to right reading mode

8 It can also be studied in the top to bottom mode in a single column with a single word in each cell

9 The top to bottom mode enables easy comparison studies with traditional scrolls in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.

10 The top to bottom mode also facilitates comparative study with hieroglyph based concepts and languages such as
Maya of South and Meso America and native languages elsewhere.

11 Last but not least, the single word per cell mode enables easy look up of lists of pAniNiya [dhatu], “roots of verbs”
and different language dictionaries and lexicons

12 The line, position in a line and the total occurrence of each and every word in the [tolkAppiyam] can be documented

13 The material in this spreadsheet is organized in 18003 rows and 27 columns (not counting column headings and corrals/fences)

14 Corrals/fences are simple cells with the character x in it to demarcate the limits of data in a spreadsheet

15 If you have received this document as a PDF file, you need to copy the text into a spreadsheet carefully.
If you need the spreadsheet proper, see item 33.

16 Material in this spread sheet (including the column heading but not the column sequence And corral of x characters)
needs to be defined first as a named Range, for example, tolkAppiyam

17 Reading and study of [tolkAppiyam] in this spreadsheet is possible by Sort and Filter of the entire named range
tolkAppiyam on different keys

CAUTION AND IMPORTANT NOTE

THE ENTIRE NAMED RANGE, tolkAppiyam CONSISTING ALL THE ROWS AND COLUMNS (INCLUDING COLUMN
HEADERS BUT NOT THE SERIAL NUMBERS ABOVE IT, NOR THE CELLS MARKED WITH X IS OUR WORK AREA

THE FULL AREA INCLUDING ALL ROWS ACROSS ALL COLUMNS NEED TO BE ARRANGED (SORTED) ALTHOUGH
OUR INTEREST MAY BE FOR ONLY A PARTICULAR COLUMN.

THE PARTICULAR COLUMN OR COLUMNS OF OUR INTEREST ARE THE KEYS ON WHICH THE ENTIRE DATA IS
TO BE SORTED.

SO, NEVER SELECT SINGLE AREAS AND SORT THEM. THIS WILL IRRETRIEVABLY DISTURB CONTENTS


AS PRECAUTION ALWAYS WORK ON COPIES OF THIS SPREADSHEET AND NOT ON THE ORIGINAL
