മലയാളം, ഇന്ത്യയിൽ‌ കേരള സംസ്ഥാനത്തിലും ലക്ഷദ്വീപിലും പുതുച്ചേരിയുടെ ഭാഗമായ മാഹിയിലും സംസാരിക്കപ്പെടുന്ന ഭാഷയാണ്. ഇതു ദ്രാവിഡ ഭാഷാ കുടുംബത്തിൽപ്പെടുന്നു. ഇന്ത്യൻ ഭരണഘടനയിലെ എട്ടാം ഷെഡ്യൂളിൽ ഉൾപ്പെടുത്തിയിരിക്കുന്ന ഇന്ത്യയിലെ ഇരുപത്തിരണ്ട് ഔദ്യോഗിക ഭാഷകളിൽ ഒന്നാണ് മലയാളം. മലയാള ഭാഷ കൈരളി എന്നും അറിയപ്പെടുന്നു. കേരള സംസ്ഥാനത്തിലെ ഭരണഭാഷയും കൂടിയാണ്‌ മലയാളം. കേരളത്തിനും ലക്ഷദ്വീപിനും പുറമേ ഗൾഫ് രാജ്യങ്ങൾ, സിംഗപ്പൂർ, മലേഷ്യ എന്നിവിടങ്ങളിലെ കേരളീയ പൈതൃകമുള്ള അനേകം ജനങ്ങളും മലയാളം ഉപയോഗിച്ചുപോരുന്നു. ദേശീയ ഭാഷയായി ഉൾപ്പെടുത്തിയത് മറ്റ് 21 ഭാഷകളുടേതു പോലെ തനതായ വ്യക്തിത്വം ഉള്ളതിനാലാണ്. മലയാള ഭാഷയുടെ ഉല്പത്തിയും പ്രാചീനതയും സംബന്ധിച്ച കാര്യങ്ങൾ ഇന്നും അവ്യക്തമാണ്. പഴയ തമിഴ് ആണ് മലയാളത്തിന്റെ ആദ്യ രൂപം എന്നു കരുതുന്നു.

The word Malayalam probably originated from the Malayalam/Tamil words mala meaning hill, and elam meaning region. Malayalam thus translates as "hill region" and used to refer to the land itself (Chera Kingdom), and only later became the name of the language. The language Malayalam is alternatively called Alealum, Malayalani, Malayali, Malean, Maliyad, and Mallealle. Due to its lineage deriving from both Sanskrit and Tamil, the Malayalam alphabet has the largest number of letters among the Indian languages. Malayalam script includes letters capable of representing all the sounds of Sanskrit and all Dravidian languages.
