Everyone knows that the word Puram means outside. But here the word has been used in the position of the external discipline of life. It was called Purananuru because it has four hundred poems about external discipline. This study aims to find the verbs of eval and viyaṅkol in these four hundred poems and explain their usage. The researcher has found such verbs in twelve places from the poems and explained their usage. He has also analyzed the connection between the sections of the poems (tinai) and the words found earlier. The origin and meaning of eval and viyankol verbs found in poems were discussed in this study. It has been found that these types of verbs are included in these poems that praise the king and the hero because the verb eval and viyankol appear only in the Munnilai.
