Tamil is World's oldest living barbarian language.
It is majorly referred so because of the cruel nature of Cholas, their act of VIOLENCE, ATROCITIES AND PLUNDER resulted in calling them as barbarians
Periyar himself was a Kannadiga ! He was not a Tamilian !

Tamil is an older language than Kannada. It's literary records pre-date Kannada works.

Kannada has a 2000 year old history, no doubt, but it is not older than Tamil, but still a classical language in it's own right !

nbdy has the ryts to underestimate any language, and tamilians if ur language is older tell me any one poet who one jnana peta puraskar, u know kannada stands nxt to sanskrit in any mean poetry, culture, beauty of sounds ,in writing tamil letters look like tom and gerry, ha ha nana makla , and if we recall history kannada and kannadiga gave many contribtion to bharatha and their language, if any tamilians know frm ur side please mention, kasturi kannada, navu kannadigaru chinnavanu beedeyali maridavaru neevu nana makla oly fitting kings, most of the tamilians are chemaleons and selfish....

The oldest literature of Kannada dates 1500 before(by 500 AD)... But Tholkappiyam, the grammar of Tamil was written somewhere between 8000BC-500BC. Please check any source on Internet or any book.
* Thirukkural was written by Thiruvalluvar more that 2000 years before. i.e., 30 years before christ was born... Beat this first.

Let me clarify what I said before u ppl start throwing abuses...

When I said Tamil is an older language than Kannada, I meant that the earliest text found "till date" in Tamil pre dates the Kannada scripts

U never know wat works might be found in the future that may change the previous statement...

in erode disticts of tamilnadu we can find peoples still speaking tamil- kannada as their mother tongue,it shows kannada is born from tamil and their community name is madari community or chakkiliyan community or arunthathiyar community.if you ask these community people about mother tongue they will tell kannada but ask them to speak kannada the will speak tamil-kannada,similarly telugu they speak tamil-telugu,similarly ask tamil to speak they speak pure tamil,this is clear evidence that kannada and telugu are born from tamil as mother.this community peoples are the ancient dravidian peoples and original tamil peoples and original indians , lived in sangam period and father of tamil,telugu,kannada origin.

Can you explain more?
Now take it,
Tamil lacks number system. It is most basic. When you write Ganesh, You are never sure how to pronounce it! It can be logically pronounced as Ganesh, Kanesh, Kanes, Ganes.
Similarly, Sada can be Sada, Chada, SaaDa, ChaaDa.
I might be old. But officially it is accepted oldested living language is Kannada. Modern tamil is not old.
FYI my tamil frieds, Kannadam in old tamil means Pure!

Tamil is the world's first language. Kannada is simply a mixture of Sanskrit.
"If we remove sanskrit words from kannada, then kannada come to nothing." This is the one proof enough to show that kannada is a late developed language.
The world's first man Adam and first women Eve talked Tamil langauage only. The Bible scholars seriously researched and come to that conclusion.
The Kumari Continent History itself tell everything that Tamil is the world's first language.
The Krantha type of words are used by kannada. This one fact enough to show that is lately developed from sanskirt by the scrips of Telugu letters. The Hindu Bramins developed the Sanskrit. Later kannada was a product from that.
But Tamil language has none of the Krantha type words. Tamil language is unique. It is the mother of all languages.
It would be world mega comedy if any one compare Tamil with the copy language kannada.
"British have recently said that Kannada has 10,000 Yrs history," - World mega fraud.
Only the world dates are 4000 year BC. and 2013 years on AD. so total 6013 years only finished since from the very first man Adam.
there is no word called krantha in kannada go search it first ,, it may be grantha then go for ADAM ,, AD OR BC what ever

I know why British invaded India and now why worst politicians are still ruling this country.
Let God helps India.

Fight for your language than loosing it with English, All you people make your child study their own mother tongue language & Enjoy hearing mother tongue than English.

In what sense you all respecting English more than your neighbor language.

Learn many language, but don't disrespect anyone mother tongue.

Old Kannada is the oldest language as per UK research...Tamil is derived from Kannada only,but script is different,Kannada is the only language that u can speak in many accents..kannada is very sweet language,which has 99% perfection in it,so no more comparison.
it is not good to compare any languge with Kannada..
