Fun facts about Sinhala

Where English has 'here' and 'there', Sinhala has four words: 'here, close to me', 'there, close to you', 'there, close to that visible person' and 'there, close to that invisible person'.

There's a Sinhala phrase, 'What use is a lamp to a blind man?', which means don't give useless things to people.§

Sinhala is an Indo-Aryan language and is thus related to the languages of North India rather than neighbouring South Indian ones, which belong to the Dravidian language family.
