When we study the grammar of Tolkappiyam then we have no doubt. But some parts of this belongs to a very early time. The use of words and his way to write is an indet that some parts belongs to a time around the birth of Christ. This is shown also by his mention of the Lord murugan who is more ancient than Siva in his cult at least in the Tamil country. There is no use of sanskrit words in the whole grammar. On the other side there are parts which have to date much later. For example the part where he explains the dot on the single consonant which he called pulli . The pulli didn t appear in Tamil literature before the 5th century. In the inscriptions of temples the pulli appears much later. This give us the need to date at least in the 5th century. Should we date this the complete grammar to this time Or should we suppose that someone else has rewritten the grammar and included the part with the pulli. What proof do we have for to take the complete grammar We didnt get any help in this question. Dear learned members of this Forum who has studdied this grammar and any suggestions to solve this difficult problem.
