lol.... I just pasted from:

http://www.languageshome.com/English-Tamil.htm


but Revy who used to be in LNP and left after Kalmadu tank burst could not speak or write Tamil, like so many others in Western countries. I bet there are Sinhalese ppl which are the same in LNP. Malayalis and Hindi speaking ppl are more strong about their language

People speak madras tamil know tamil script very well. But many diaspora tamils from srilanka don't even know to write in or read tamil script, they prefer to communicate in the language of the country they settled in rather than learning tamil. I doubt nale, shan etc here know tamil script. :)) I think that is the reason why Pharoah left out Srilanka from his list. :))
