Fun facts about Malayalam

The script is very rounded because it used to be written on palm leaves, which would tear if straight lines were used.

Malayalam has quite a large number of household words of Portuguese origin: for example, 'chāvi' means 'key' (from 'chave'), 'janāla' means 'window' (from 'janela'), 'alamāra' means 'cupboard' (from 'armário').

The idiom ആന വായില്‍ അമ്പഴങ്ങാ means 'a small fruit in an elephant's mouth', or too small an amount to satisfy a great need.
