Aitaal, Eetaal and Matteitaal: Poonoor Isogloss

Poonoor; from wonders it literally stems,
There it could be seen, the differences
As the land itself is not the same 
As the rest of the places.
The people, dialects, culture and so forth
Are unique and attract thousands. 
Folks from southern districts
Used to deride our dialects
Asking us to learn the 'actual Malayalam dialects'.
Tracing back to the beginning, 
It was in the southern part of Kerala
That began the printing.
Thus, Southern dialects became 
'So-called standard accent'.
Poonoor dialect would have been an elite accent
(still it stands as elite for us, though)
If the printing had begun in Poonoor.
But, it never happened.
People come from outside speak different dialects;
Slowly they are being immersed 
In 'Poonoor dialects' of Malayalam.
Saying Aitaal, Eetaal, Matteitaal, and many more!
 
 
 
Aitaal: That one
Eetaal: This one
Matteitaal: That different one
