both the words ilakkanam and ilakkiyam are not tamil words.

the sanscrit words lakshanam and lakshiyam are adopted in tamil.

since no tamil word should start from a letter la
lakshanam and lakshiyam became ilakkanam and ilakkiyam.

ilakkanam or lakshanam tells about the kunadisayangal of a language, and lakshiyam or ilakkiyam (ilakku iyambuthal) tells about a ilakku.

thats what one of my friends tells

is he right
