Numerous forms of literature exist in Tamil language of which, lyrics play a vital role in taking the language to every house hold in form of original film soundtracks, jingles, private albums, and commercials. With over thousands of lyrics being created every year, we do not have proper tools to model and analyse lyrics. Such an analysis framework would enable one to see various patterns of words, combinations and thoughts used over time. Technology is available to do the above things if the language ideology with regard to spoken Tamil mentioned above is a driving force. It is also for teaching Tamil effectively and attractively. It is the desire of all of us to mitigate the difficulties of learning Tamil by the younger generation of Tamils and also the non-native speakers of Tamil.
