The WORST English mistakes native speakers make
 
17:39
Even native English speakers make mistakes! In this video, you'll learn five mistakes English speakers make that you should avoid. We'll look at spelling, pronunciation, confused meanings, bad grammar, slang, and words that don't exist! It's okay to make mistakes, and when you're learning a language, you're going to make some. My goal in this lesson is to get rid of some common mistakes, so that you can sound smarter and be more confident with your English. Once you know these five mistakes, watch this other video on five other common native speaker mistakes: https://youtu.be/75CP1xyoNFo TRANSCRIPT "Swept up like a douche on the..." Uh, douche. Deuce, deuce, deuce. Hi. James from engVid. I just made a mistake in singing that song. I used the wrong words or lyrics. It happens all the time. People do it when they speak. And native speakers make certain mistakes that we don't think of as mistakes, and sometimes even teachers, like myself, will do it. So, this particular lesson is how to not make the mistakes that we make, and we don't even know we're making them. I want to help you speak like a native speaker, but not make the same mistakes they do. Okay? So, we're going to look at five different word pairs that are confused in English. But at the end of this lesson, you won't be confused, and in fact, you should understand English a little bit better. Are you ready? Let's go to the board. Okay. "Swept up like a douche", what was I thinking? Are you ready? So, look, Mr. E's saying: "We all make mistakes!" And what mistakes does he want to point out today? Let's take a look. "Literally" versus "figuratively". "I literally fell down the stairs. Well, figuratively speaking, I fell down the stairs." For you, it doesn't make a difference, but there's a huge difference. "Literally" in English means it actually happened. What I'm talking about happened. So, I literally got punched in the face. I got punched, literally, you can see it. But if it didn't happen, maybe somebody said something to you that you didn't like and you said: "It felt like I got punched in the stomach, like I was literally punched." Well, no, they said something you didn't like, that's figuratively. So you could say: "Figuratively speaking" or "Figuratively put, it felt like I got punched in the stomach." "Literally" means it has to happen, "figuratively" is a metaphor. It's a way of using language to let someone know how you feel in a graphic way. Okay? So, you're giving them something to feel with or work with, because it didn't happen, but you can't really explain how it felt. A punch in the stomach really hurts. Well, words don't physically hurt you, but we all know what it's... Well, maybe. We know what it's like to get hit in the stomach, it's not comfortable, so we understand what they're saying. Right? Cool. How about the next one? "Could have", "could of". Huh? Well, here's the deal: It's more about stress than anything else. This is something that we don't pay attention to, because as English speakers, we know: "I could have done that", it's really a stress of the "v" from the "have". Right? "Could have", because we contract the word to: "could", and it looks like this, we get rid of this and do that, and it becomes: "could've". But because we say "v" and we stress that, people who are non-native think we're saying "could of". Now, it's not really noticeable when they speak or we speak, because, you know, you can't see words when I am talking. The problem comes when you write. An English speaker will write: "I could have done this", and they will write either: "could have" or they'll write "could": "could've", like this. But unfortunately, non-native speakers will actually write it with "of" because they're confused by the words. Right? So this is a mistake more for writing, but be careful. Okay? You can have the same thing with: "could of", "should of", "would of", the o-f. Okay? Cool. So that's number two. Let's look at number three, another mistake that native people make sometimes, and you might make more often. "Who" versus "that". This is a simple one. "Who" is used for people. "Do you know the guy who lives next door?", "who" because "who" is a person. Easy enough. "That" is used for things. "Do you know the machine that sits on top of my counter?" Because it's not a person, it's a thing. And usually you remember this when we talk about: "Do you want this or do you want that?" You don't refer to people with "this" or "that", generally speaking. Okay? But sometimes... Notice that I made a mistake. Huh? I'm going to go here. I made a little mistake. Sorry, guys. "Noticeable", now that is much more noticeable, so don't make my mistake. See? We all make mistakes. Anyway, "who" versus "that". Now, when I said "that" with a machine: "Do you know that machine on my desk?" it's for things. Right? You wouldn't say: "Do you know the machine who sits on my desk?"

A good video about the screen printing machine. This free video was created for you by http://epsos.de and can be re-used for free, under the creative commons license, with the attribution of epSos.de as the original creator of this video about the screen printing machine. Thank you for supporting the creative commons movement !! The screen printing is a printing method with a special ink. The special ink is pressed trough a fine net onto the fabric. The net has holes, but not everywhere. The color can pass trough the holes onto the fabric. The spaces without the holes are without the color. The net must have an picture in the shape of the holes. The net can be made from silk, nylon or metal. This screen printing method is very good for many materials. It is possible to print on a flat material or on curved surfaces. These special ink can be used on different materials. On metal, plastic, wood, textile, glass and ceramic too. The size of the printed image has no limits. It can be bigger than the net. The image can have multiple parts and an unlimited number of colors, as long as the colors are all mixed together. The screen printing ink can be very thick or very thin. Multiple layers of ink can be printed on top of each-other. The printing speed is relatively slow, but the quality is very high. Screen printing is used in the advertising, for labels, in the printing processes on t-shirts, ceramic mugs and industrial applications. Many artists love the screen printing machines, because the artists can mix any color and all the prints are unique, every time ! Screen printing is a very traditional process. The printing frame has an image in the shape of a net with holes. This image can be made by a special machine, or it can be printed or painted with glue. It is possible to create everything with hands and without machines. The spaces without the glue will create the holes int the screen. The holes will allow the pain to go trough. The ink will create and image. The mask prevents the paint from going through. The holes allow the pain to go trough. The mask is an exact opposite of the final image. Quality is very important for women. The printing screen can be connected with a frame, so that it does not move during the printing process. The t-shirt is on the plate, so that it does not move during the printing process. The plate can be warm, so that the paint can enter the T-shirt much better. After the printing, the paint must become dry. It is possible to heat the pain, so that the textile and the pain will connect together. The heat connects the paint to the T-shirt. The paint does become part of the textile and can not be separated anymore. The modern screen printing process is relatively modern. It was invented in the first half of the 20th century. Europe and Japan used similar screen printing processes in the 18th and 19th centuries, but the machines were not as good as today. Many artists use the screen printing method for their art, because they can create everything at home. Even paper can be used for the screen printing. Just cut out the holes on paper and press the paint into the holes of the image on the paper. The screen printing process is very practical and easy. The graphical screen printing is used by artists. Industrial screen printing and textile printing is used on a large scale. There are very important printing applications for glass, ceramic and any products that are created in very large qualities. Industrial screen printing is also used for the manufacturing of electronics, solar cells, computers, window heating elements, dashboards, T-shirts, sport bags, curtain fabrics, clothing, carpets, and much more. Screen printing designs are produced with existing images of drawings. Manual production of screen printing frames is possible. The manual techniques are often used for education of artists. The screen printing process is very good for mixed colors and images with many small lines. The screen printing paints are very durable and can be used on any surface. You can re-use this video for free. Go ahead. Thank you for supporting the creative commons movement !!

SONG FWAA ‘The wrong band for the right people.’ Song Fwaa (from the French sangfroid; literally cold blood, colloquially coolness under pressure). Original, unusual and conversational music from three of Australiaʼs finest improvisors; Martin Kay on alto sax (Fantastic Terrific Munkle/Continuum Sax/SSO), David Reaston on guitar (leader of the 10 Guitar Project), and Jamie Cameron on drums (20th Century Dog/Amphibious/Adam Ponting). Melodies, sometimes pretty, sometimes catchy, and occasionally abstract and angular, collide with improvisations chattering and emoting, propelling the listener on an exciting express. A fascination for texture and offbeat interactions led to a consensus to improvise and compose as a chamber ensemble. Song Fwaa views music as an open vessel into which ideas are dropped and stewed. One is as likely to encounter a ragged ragtime or a post-bop scronk as much as a munted groove or a dodecaphonic row. Transcending the trioʼs eclectic curiosity and its diverse stylistic range, Song Fwaa demonstrates a unity of purpose: creating passionate music that resonates in both mind and body. ‘Song Fwaa’s music is an extraordinary collection…The trio has adopted a Ligeti-style approach, sometimes using dense webs of texture suspended in space and time…eclecticism is skillfuly and originally explored.’ John McBeath, The Australian, 14/5/2011. ‘The eerie sonic world weaves composition and improvisation as thoroughly as it mingles and blurs the sounds…. By turns dense, disquieting, playful, moving and hypnotic, it adds up to the finest recorded work by each member of this fiercely cohesive Sydney trio.’ John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald, 15/7/2011.

4. William Butler Yeats

Modern Poetry (ENGL 310) with Langdon Hammer The early poetry of William Butler Yeats is read and interpreted with particular attention paid to Yeats's ambitions as a specifically Irish poet. Yeats's commitment to a poetry of symbol is explored in "The Song of the Wandering Aengus," a fable of poetic vocation. "A Coat," composed at the end of Yeats's struggle to bring about an Irish national theater, shows the poet reconceiving his style and in search of a new audience. "The Fisherman" is read as a revision of "The Song of the Wandering Aengus" which reflects this new set of concerns. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction: William Butler Yeats 06:28 - Chapter 2. W. B.

Japanese writing system
 
21:48
The modern Japanese writing system is a combination of two character types: logographic Kanji, adopted from Chinese characters, and syllabic Kana. Kana itself consists of a pair of syllabaries: Hiragana, used for native or naturalised Japanese words and grammatical elements, and Katakana, used for foreign words and names, loanwords, onomatopoeia, scientific names, and sometimes for emphasis. Almost all Japanese sentences contain a mixture of kanji and kana. Because of this mixture of scripts, in addition to a large inventory of kanji characters, the Japanese writing system is often considered to be the most complicated in use anywhere in the world. Several thousand kanji characters are in regular use. Each character has an intrinsic meaning (or range of meanings), and most have more than one pronunciation, the choice of which depends on context. The hiragana and katakana syllabaries also originally derive from Chinese characters, but have been simplified and modified to such an extent that the character origins are no longer obvious. In modern Japanese, each contains 46 basic characters, or 71 including diacritics. Each different sound in the Japanese language (that is, each different syllable, strictly each mora) is represented by one character in each syllabary. Unlike kanji, these characters intrinsically represent sounds only; they convey meaning only as part of words. This video is targeted to blind users.

Guadalupe Valdés - Understanding Lanuage
 
01:16:18
As part of the UC Davis School of Education's Distinguished Educational Thinker Series, Professor Guadelupe Valdés gave a talk at UC Davis in January 2013 titled "Understanding Language in Schools." Valdés argues that English learners must be given access to grade level content while they are learning English. "Writing is about ideas, but we pretend with English learners that language must emerge pristine before they can engage in the academic content. We must push for comprehension before focusing on production because it is most important for learning."
Russian literature
 
42:20
Russian literature refers to the literature of Russia and its émigrés and to the Russian-language literature of several independent nations once a part of what was historically Rus', Russia or the Soviet Union. Roots of Russian literature can be traced to the Middle Ages, when epics and chronicles in Old Russian were composed. By the Age of Enlightenment, literature had grown in importance, and from the early 1830s, Russian literature underwent an astounding golden age in poetry, prose and drama. Romanticism permitted a flowering of poetic talent: Vasily Zhukovsky and later his protégé Alexander Pushkin came to the fore. Prose was flourishing as well. The first great Russian novelist was Nikolai Gogol. Then came Ivan Turgenev, who mastered both short stories and novels. Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky soon became internationally renowned. In the second half of the century Anton Chekhov excelled in short stories and became a leading dramatist. The beginning of the 20th century ranks as the Silver Age of Russian poetry. The poets most often associated with the "Silver Age" are Konstantin Balmont, Valery Bryusov, Alexander Blok, Anna Akhmatova, Nikolay Gumilyov, Osip Mandelstam, Sergei Yesenin, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Marina Tsvetaeva and Boris Pasternak. This era produced some first-rate novelists and short-story writers, such as Aleksandr Kuprin, Nobel Prize winner Ivan Bunin, Leonid Andreyev, Fedor Sologub, Aleksey Remizov, Yevgeny Zamyatin, Dmitry Merezhkovsky and Andrei Bely. After the Revolution of 1917, Russian literature split into Soviet and white émigré parts. While the Soviet Union assured universal literacy and a highly developed book printing industry, it also enforced ideological censorship. In the 1930s Socialist realism became the predominant trend in Russia. Its leading figure was Maxim Gorky, who laid the foundations of this style. Nikolay Ostrovsky's novel How the Steel Was Tempered has been among the most successful works of Russian literature. Alexander Fadeyev achieved success in Russia. Various émigré writers, such as poets Vladislav Khodasevich, Georgy Ivanov and Vyacheslav Ivanov; novelists such as Mark Aldanov, Gaito Gazdanov and Vladimir Nabokov; and short story Nobel Prize winning writer Ivan Bunin, continued to write in exile. The Khrushchev Thaw brought some fresh wind to literature and poetry became a mass cultural phenomenon. This "thaw" did not last long; in the 1970s, some of the most prominent authors were banned from publishing and prosecuted for their anti-Soviet sentiments. This video is targeted to blind users.

Geoffrey Chaucer
 
41:05
Geoffrey Chaucer , known as the Father of English literature, is widely considered the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages and was the first poet to have been buried in Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey. While he achieved fame during his lifetime as an author, philosopher, alchemist and astronomer, composing a scientific treatise on the astrolabe for his ten year-old son Lewis, Chaucer also maintained an active career in the civil service as a bureaucrat, courtier and diplomat. Among his many works, which include The Book of the Duchess, the House of Fame, the Legend of Good Women and Troilus and Criseyde, he is best known today for The Canterbury Tales. Chaucer is a crucial figure in developing the legitimacy of the vernacular, Middle English, at a time when the dominant literary languages in England were French and Latin.

Cows in Slow Motion from "Marvels of Motion A" circa 1930 Film Circulation Corp Newsreel

Cow walking, seen through mirrored lenses so she appears to slide into nothingness and then reemerge." Inkwell Studios - Film Circulation Corp. "Alfred Weiss presents...". Dialogue and narration by Allan McDonald. Public domain film from the Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slow_motion Slow motion (commonly abbreviated as slowmo) is an effect in film-making whereby time appears to be slowed down. It was invented by the Austrian priest August Musger. Typically this style is achieved when each film frame is captured at a rate much faster than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving more slowly. A term for creating slow motion film is overcranking which refers to hand cranking an early camera at a faster rate than normal (i.e. faster than 24 frames per second). Slow motion can also be achieved by playing normally recorded footage at a slower speed. This technique is more often applied to video subjected to instant replay, than to film. A third technique that is becoming common using current computer software post-processing (with programs like Twixtor) is to fabricate digitally interpolated frames to smoothly transition between the frames that were actually shot. Motion can be slowed further by combining techniques, interpolating between overcranked frames. The traditional method for achieving super-slow motion is through high-speed photography, a more sophisticated technique that uses specialized equipment to record fast phenomena, usually for scientific applications. Slow motion is ubiquitous in modern filmmaking. It is used by a diverse range of directors to achieve diverse effects. Some classic subjects of slow motion include: - Athletic activities of all kinds, to demonstrate skill and style. - To recapture a key moment in an athletic game, typically shown as a replay. - Natural phenomena, such as a drop of water hitting a glass. Slow motion can also be used for artistic effect, to create a romantic or suspenseful aura or to stress a moment in time. Vsevolod Pudovkin, for instance, used slow motion in a suicide scene in The Deserter, in which a man jumping into a river seems sucked down by the slowly splashing waves. Another example is Face/Off, in which John Woo used the same technique in the movements of a flock of flying pigeons. The Matrix made a distinct success in applying the effect into action scenes through the use of multiple cameras, as well as mixing slow-motion with live action in other scenes. Japanese director Akira Kurosawa was a pioneer using this technique in his 1954 movie Seven Samurai. American director Sam Peckinpah was another classic lover of the use of slow motion. The technique is especially associated with explosion effect shots and underwater footage. The opposite of slow motion is fast motion. Cinematographers refer to fast motion as undercranking since it was originally achieved by cranking a handcranked camera slower than normal. It is often used for comic effect, time lapse or occasional stylistic effect. The concept of slow motion may have existed before the invention of the motion picture: the Japanese theatrical form Noh employs very slow movements... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle Cattle (colloquially cows) are the most common type of large domesticated ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified collectively as Bos primigenius. Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks) (pulling carts, plows and the like). Other products include leather and dung for manure or fuel. In some countries, such as India, cattle are sacred. From as few as 80 progenitors domesticated in southeast Turkey about 10,500 years ago, an estimated 1.3 billion cattle are in the world today. In 2009, cattle became the first livestock animal to have a fully mapped genome...

Kakarla Tyagabrahmam, colloquially known as Tyāgarāja and Tyagayya, was one of the greatest composers of Carnatic music or Indian classical music. He was a prolific composer and highly influential in the development of the South Indian classical music tradition. Tyagaraja composed thousands of devotional compositions, most of them in praise of Lord Rama — most of which remain very popular even today. Of special mention are five of his compositions called the Pancharatna Kriti (English: 'five gems'), which are often sung in programs in his honor. Carnatic music, Karnāṭaka saṃgīta or Karnāṭaka saṅgītam is a system of music commonly associated with the southern part of the Indian subcontinent, with its area roughly confined to four modern states of India: Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu. It is one of two main subgenres of Indian classical music that evolved from ancient Hindu traditions, the other subgenre being Hindustani music, which emerged as a distinct form because of Persian and Islamic influences in northern India. The main emphasis in Carnatic music is on vocal music; most compositions are written to be sung, and even when played on instruments, they are meant to be performed in gāyaki (singing) style. Although there are stylistic differences, the basic elements of śruti (the relative musical pitch), swara (the musical sound of a single note), rāga (the mode or melodic formulæ), and tala (the rhythmic cycles) form the foundation of improvisation and composition in both Carnatic and Hindustani music. Although improvisation plays an important role, Carnatic music is mainly sung through compositions, especially the kriti (or kirtanam) – a form developed between the 14th and 20th centuries by composers such as Purandara Dasa and the Trinity of Carnatic music. Carnatic music is also usually taught and learned through compositions.

Ligeti's Goat (Martin Kay)
 
10:53
SONG FWAA ‘The wrong band for the right people.’ Song Fwaa (from the French sangfroid; literally cold blood, colloquially coolness under pressure). Original, unusual and conversational music from three of Australiaʼs finest improvisors; Martin Kay on alto sax (Fantastic Terrific Munkle/Continuum Sax/SSO), David Reaston on guitar (leader of the 10 Guitar Project), and Jamie Cameron on drums (20th Century Dog/Amphibious/Adam Ponting). Melodies, sometimes pretty, sometimes catchy, and occasionally abstract and angular, collide with improvisations chattering and emoting, propelling the listener on an exciting express. A fascination for texture and offbeat interactions led to a consensus to improvise and compose as a chamber ensemble. Song Fwaa views music as an open vessel into which ideas are dropped and stewed. One is as likely to encounter a ragged ragtime or a post-bop scronk as much as a munted groove or a dodecaphonic row. Transcending the trioʼs eclectic curiosity and its diverse stylistic range, Song Fwaa demonstrates a unity of purpose: creating passionate music that resonates in both mind and body. ‘Song Fwaa’s music is an extraordinary collection…The trio has adopted a Ligeti-style approach, sometimes using dense webs of texture suspended in space and time…eclecticism is skillfuly and originally explored.’ John McBeath, The Australian, 14/5/2011. ‘The eerie sonic world weaves composition and improvisation as thoroughly as it mingles and blurs the sounds…. By turns dense, disquieting, playful, moving and hypnotic, it adds up to the finest recorded work by each member of this fiercely cohesive Sydney trio.’ John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald, 15/7/2011.

Hebrew alphabet
 
23:53
The Hebrew alphabet (Hebrew: אָלֶף־בֵּית עִבְרִי, alefbet ʿIvri ), known variously by scholars as the Jewish script, square script, block script, is used in the writing of the Hebrew language, as well as other Jewish languages, most notably Yiddish, Ladino, and Judeo-Arabic. There have been two script forms in use; the original old Hebrew script is known as the paleo-Hebrew script (which has been largely preserved, in an altered form, in the Samaritan script), while the present "square" form of the Hebrew alphabet is a stylized form of the Assyrian script. Various "styles" (in current terms, "fonts") of representation of the letters exist. There is also a cursive Hebrew script, which has also varied over time and place. The Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters, of which five have different forms when used at the end of a word. Hebrew is written from right to left. Originally, the alphabet was an abjad consisting only of consonants. Like other abjads, such as the Arabic alphabet, means were later devised to indicate vowels by separate vowel points, known in Hebrew as niqqud. In rabbinic Hebrew, the letters א ה ו י are also used as matres lectionis to represent vowels. When used to write Yiddish, the writing system is a true alphabet (except for borrowed Hebrew words). In modern usage of the alphabet, as in the case of Yiddish (except that ע replaces ה) and to some extent modern Israeli Hebrew, vowels may be indicated. Today, the trend is toward full spelling with these letters acting as true vowels. This video is targeted to blind users.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a series of luxury sedans produced by German automaker Mercedes-Benz, a division of German company Daimler AG. The classification was officially introduced in 1972 with the W116 S-Class, which succeeded previous Mercedes-Benz models dating to the mid-1950s. The S-Class has served as the flagship model for Mercedes for over fifty years in its various incarnations. The S-Class has debuted many of the company's latest innovations, including drivetrain technologies, interior features, and safety systems (such as the first seatbelt pretensioners). The S-Class has ranked as the world's best-selling luxury sedan, and its latest generation, the W222 S-Class, premiered in 2013. As in previous iterations, the W221 S-Class is sold in standard- and long-wheelbase versions; I4, V6, V8, V12, diesel and hybrid powertrains are offered. All models built in Mexico or sold in the United States are only available in long wheelbase. "S-Class" is the anglicized version of "S-Klasse," a German abbreviation of "Sonderklasse," which means "special class" (in the sense of "a class of its own"). In automotive terms it refers to "a specially outfitted car." Although used colloquially for decades, following its official application in 1972, six generations of officially named S-Class sedans have been produced. Previous two-door coupe models of the S-Class were known as SEC and later S-Coupe. In 1998 the S-Class coupe was spun off in a separate line as the CL-Class, however it will be re-designated as the S-Coupe for the W222 model coupes. This video is targeted to blind users.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= Tamil (; தமிழ் Tamiḻ [t̪ɐmɨɻ], pronunciation ) is a Dravidian language predominantly spoken by the Tamil people of India and Sri Lanka, and by the Tamil diaspora, Sri Lankan Moors, Burghers, Douglas, and Chindians. Tamil is an official language of three countries: India, Sri Lanka and Singapore. It has official status in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and the Indian Union Territory of Puducherry. It is used as one of the languages of education in Malaysia, along with English, Malay and Mandarin. Tamil is spoken by significant minorities in the four other South Indian states of Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana and the Union Territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It is one of the 22 scheduled languages of India. Tamil is one of the longest-surviving classical languages in the world. Tamil-Brahmi inscriptions from 500 BC have been found on Adichanallur and 2,200-year-old Tamil-Brahmi inscriptions have been found on Samanamalai. A. K. Ramanujan described it as "the only language of contemporary India which is recognizably continuous with a classical past." The variety and quality of classical Tamil literature has led to it being described as "one of the great classical traditions and literature of the world".A recorded Tamil literature has been documented for over 2000 years. The earliest period of Tamil literature, Sangam literature, is dated from ca. 300 BC – AD 300. It has the oldest extant literature among Dravidian languages. The earliest epigraphic records found on rock edicts and 'hero stones' date from around the 3rd century BC. More than 55% of the epigraphical inscriptions (about 55,000) found by the Archaeological Survey of India are in the Tamil language. Tamil language inscriptions written in Brahmi script have been discovered in Sri Lanka and on trade goods in Thailand and Egypt. The two earliest manuscripts from India, acknowledged and registered by the UNESCO Memory of the World register in 1997 and 2005, were written in Tamil.In 1578, Portuguese Christian missionaries published a Tamil prayer book in old Tamil script named Thambiraan Vanakkam, thus making Tamil the first Indian language to be printed and published. The Tamil Lexicon, published by the University of Madras, was one of the earliest dictionaries published in the Indian languages. According to a 2001 survey, there were 1,863 newspapers published in Tamil, of which 353 were dailies.
