It belongs to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European languages. Sinhala has its own writing system, the Sinhala alphabet, which includes mostly curlicues, i.e. straight lines are almost completely absent from the alphabet, because it used to be written on dried palm leaves, which would split along the veins on writing straight lines.
