Dhivehi is an Indo-Aryan language and the official language of the Republic of the Maldives. It has 300,000 speakers, mostly in the Maldives, and in Lakshadweep, an Indian Union Territory. The Mahl dialect is spoken in the Lakshadweep union territory. Many languages have influenced the development of Dhivehi through the ages, Arabic being one of the main ones. Others include Sinhalese, Malayalam, Hindi, French, Persian, Portuguese, and English. Dhivehi is thought to have shared a common mother language to Sinhalese, which became extinct with the birth of the two new languages around 500 BC.
Due to the widespread distribution of the islands, differences in pronunciation and vocabulary have developed, especially between the northern and southern atolls. People in Malé cannot understand the dialect of Addu.
Dhivehi is written using a unique script, called Thaana, written from right to left, but was formerly written in Dhives Akuru which is written from left to right. Dhives Akuru was used in all of the islands until the 1700s and the arrival of Islam, but was used in all official correspondence with Addu Atoll until the early 1900s. Also, it was used in some isolated islands and rural communities until the 1960s. Its last remaining native user died in the 1990s, and today Maldivians learn it as their second script if they learn it at all.
