Sinhalese is the official language of Ceylon, now known as Sri Lanka. It is spoken by about 14 million people, living mainly in the southern and western two-thirds ot the island. An Indo-iluropean language descended from Sanskrit, Sinhalese was brought to Ceylon by settlers from northern India in the 5th century B.C. The alphabet, however, with its generally rounded letters, more closely resembles those of the Dravidian languages of southern India. The English words tourmaline and beriberi are of Sinhalese origin.
