看到关于 hongwei 的关于迪维希语的文字图片，我突然想起来斯里兰卡语。因为文字都有这种画的像”心“一样的字母。呵呵，看起来真的太可爱了。 记得我第一次看到同学写出这种文字时，我以为他在画爱情密码，哈哈
Singhalease is the language spoken by the majority of people in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is an ethnicaly very diverse countyr consisting of Sinhalease, Tamil, Muslim and Burger races. The sinhalese, who make up the majority speak the sinhalese language.
The sinhalese is a Aryan langauge related to other Indo-Aryan languages and is derived from the Pali and Sanskrit languages. More interestingly Sinhalese is also connected to all the Indo European languages such as German, English, Russian, Swedish etc.
The sinhalese alphabet is a sylabic alphabet consisting of 54 consonants and 24 vowels. (The numbers are a little hard to pin down because there are some ancient letters that are no longer in use and their have been additions to deal with other languages). The general use is limited to 38 consonants and 18 vowels. The letters are constructed in intircate curves. The straight edges found in the parental alphabets have transformed into curves because early Sri Lankan lettering was done on dry palm leaves, where the straight edges would tear the paper.
回复 2楼 hongwei0315 的帖子呵呵，请诸位不要见怪，因为僧伽罗字母在我眼中，就仿佛一只只老鼠。有踞有立，尾巴有垂有翘……
