What is “Tupperware” in Tamil?
Tupperware is a brand name and would likely remain unchanged in Tamil. Nike, for instance, is Nike, whether in German or in English. Tamil uses a script, which is syllabic and not alphabetic, like English, for instance. A phonetic approximation of the word “Tupperware” could likely be produced by stringing together a number of Tamil script syllables.
Contact with European languages has affected both written and spoken Tamil. Changes in written Tamil include the use of European-style punctuation and the use of consonant clusters that were not permitted in Middle Tamil. The syntax of written Tamil has also changed, with the introduction of new aspectual auxiliaries and more complex sentence structures, and with the emergence of a more rigid word order that resembles the syntactic argument structure of English.
