SINHALA or SINHALESE is the national language of Sri Lanka. It has a remarkable existence in the UAE, Canada, Maldives, Singapore, Thailand and other countries. More than 20 million people speak Sinhala worldwide.

The foundation of the Sinhalese nation is conventionally assigned to the 6th century BC. The language of Sinhalese, is derived from Sanskrit and Pali, the language of the Buddhist scriptures. Unlike in English, there is kind of difference between the literary and the colloquial language. Cave and rock inscriptions (3rd century BC - 12th century AC), the Sigiri graffiti (8th-10th centuries) and the earliest extant Sinhala literature (9th century onwards) furnish us with the development of modern Sinhalese language..
