    Hi,
    I'm looking for healthy conversation.
    We need to do more archaeology research on Tamil, because Tamil is the oldest language in the world. If we need exact information/detail about human evolution, language evolution, animal evolution then we should start research on Tamil language/people from South India.

    Presumably this would be a university research project. Are new projects even being considered at the moment what with virus related issues and the fact we no longer have relatively easy access to EU funds.

    Where do you think there are currently gaps? There are tens/hundreds of thousand papers around the subject (including Proto-Dravidian languages) so identifying where you think there is information missing.

    Also when you say Tamil is the oldest language in the world, what are your criteria for that? As there are many claims to the oldest language depending on what your criteria are (e.g. Sumerian , Sanskrit , Lithuanian)
