Maldivian woman & language

The translation of the poem into Divehi (Mahl, Divehli, Divehi Bas, Mahal, Huvadu, Fuvah Mulaku, Dhivehi Bas, Addu, Maldivian, Dhivehi, Malikh, Maliku Bas, Malki, Mali, Minicoy Dialect, Malé, Autonym : ދިވެހި‎).

Maldivian is an Indo-Aryan language related to Sinhala. It is the national language of the Maldives whose capital is Malé. The Maldives are a group of coral islands in southern India, in the middle of the Indian Ocean; dhivehi has around 300,000 speakers.

The divehi would have as origin the Sinhalese. It is here written with its real alphabet the thâna (thaana), which is written from right to left. We do not know when Sinhala and Maldivian began to separate.

The standard of divehi is based on the speaking of Male (the capital), the languages of the southern Maldives are quite different.

Have you ever met a Maldivian woman? Me no, but they are said to be so pretty that seeing the fabulous landscape of the Maldives is nothing beside them.

One day I will see one, come towards me, and lay on my cheeks her tenderest kisses.

Maldives Islands

The Maldives are located in the Indian Ocean and have a thousand islands. Their peculiarity is their very low altitude above sea level, which makes it a country particularly threatened by a rise of waters linked to global warming.

the Maldivians are Indo-Aryans of Sinhala descent, presumably originally from Sri Lanka, unless the Sinhalese migrations to Ceylon and the Maldives took place at the same time. Islamized in the 12 th century, they are mixed with Arabs, Indonesians and Africans; they practice agriculture and fishing.
