How to self publish a Tamil book: Complete Guide

Thinking to self publish a Tamil Book? First let’s to know the history of Tamil Language. Tamil is one of the few extant classical languages, having a literary tradition dating back two millennia.

Because of the high level of diglossia in Tamil and the priority given to classical Tamil, much of the vocabulary and forms of spoken Tamil have been kept in modern Tamil, with the higher registers of literary Tamil moving towards the classical language.

The oldest surviving examples of Tamil writing are rock Tamil inscriptions from the third century BCE written in Tamil-Brahmin script, a modified version of the Brahmi alphabet (Mahadevan, 2003).

Tamil literature and language are divided into three periods by linguists: ancient (500 BCE to 700 CE), mediaeval (700 CE to 1500 CE), and modern (after 1500 CE) (1500 CE to the present). 

  • The term ‘Tamil’ has multiple meanings. Centamil is especially well suited to literary Tamil prose. However, it is unsuited for writing vernacular Tamil, koduntamil. In the nineteenth century, attempts were undertaken to create a written version of the vernacular spoken language. Colloquial written language is usually found in educational books and dialogue situations in fiction nowadays.
  • Tamil is written in Arwi, an Arabic script used by Muslims who speak Tamil. Tamil is the only language in which a god is also embodied. The Tamil Thai temple at Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, is the deified personification of the Tamil language as a mother.
  • The first book was published in Tamil. The oldest book, “Thambiran Vanakkam,” is on exhibit at Harvard University’s museum in the United States. Tolkappiyam, penned by Tolkappiyar, is the oldest Tamil book still in print today. The book is a first-century BC or AD grammatical treatise.
  • Tamils refer to vowels as “life letters” and consonants as “body letters.” Needless to say, things must work together. As a result, the vowel consonants are referred to as ‘life body’ letters. This is a one-of-a-kind approach to alphabets. Tamils have their own letter.
  • The Tamil alphabet consists of 247 letters (12 vowels, 18 consonants, 216 vowel consonants, and one unexplained letter called Aytha Ezuthu). It is spelled with three dots and pronounced ‘AH.’

Many traditional publishing houses strive to remain in global or national languages so that everyone can read and enjoy them. While self-publishing is very different, it allows you to explore the world of publishing while also saving money. However, selecting a decent publishing house is also difficult.
