PostSubject: Learning HINDI   Tue Feb 26, 2008 3:02 am

Quote :
ПОлиша, как же так, тебя до сих пор никто не научил??? Ну тогда научу тебя парочке самых известных ругательств. Итак (Рани нас с тобой не забанит, а?):
saala (ж.р. saali) - типа сволочь, зараза, урод и т.п. - originally это термин родства - брат или сестра жены
kameena (ж.р. kameeni) - типа сволочь, примерно то же, что и предыдущее.
kutta (ж.р. kutiya) - собака (в ж.р. это вообще в принципе англ. bitch)
gadha (ж.р. gadhi) - осел (ослица) - для тупящих людей
bandar (ж.р. bandariya) - обезьяна, мартышка - кривляется если много
На всю ивановскую орать эти ругательтва не рекомендуется
What I can say I memorized those words! And when I was in India, at the book fair I met a lot ppl, some of them became as my friends later, when they asked me do you know something from hindi, I said, yes, sure, I know bandar and gadha Rolf they make a big eyes Rolf and always asked me who taught you of course I didnt tell who it was Wink
So maybe someone will teach me everyday hindi Wink bcz I want to say something else in hindi lol! not only bandar and etc.
And plus some indians were really surprised when on their question do you speak hindi I replied "no" as a rule they react like this mouth drop or like this bangself bang head YOU DONT KNOW HINDI??????? (иногда еще такое лицо делали, типа да ты полный отстой, фу! вообще казлыыыы!!!!! как-будто хинди это такой популярный язык, что просто даже не обсуждается, все должны на хинди говорить) Later I began to reply but you also dont know Russian hihi
I tried to study hindi but it was unsuccessfully, later I understood that for me more useful to remember hindi by phrases:
For.exe.
namaste!
kya haal hai?
achi hoon or teek huoom
aur aap?

Another aspect of learning a language is pronunciation. It would be good idea to get some audio cds or cassettes for improving.

Lena, do you know Devanagari? Can you read?
I could write some phrases but only in Devanagari. I don't know how exactly it'd be in transcription Embarassed

Even I dont know why...guess its some indian trait....or maybe out of curiosity...their eyes may get popped if you do start speaking hindi fluently...

We have a friend here - Nastya - she knows hindi pretty well...and whenever any seller tells her some ridiculous price....she just says "Pagal samjha hai kya? (you think I am crazy?)"..and the seller is too surprised to bargain with her lol!

Mujhe yaad nahin he - Я не помню.

(вот как написать, что в nahin - конечная н - носовая? scratch совсем неслышная Wink )

Mujhe kuchh nanin chahiye - Я ничего не хочу.
Kya mamla he? - В чем проблема?
Vada karo! - Обещай!
Bich me mat bolo! - Не перебивай!


Enough to break the ice? Wink

Rolf Where did you pick that up, Polyanka?

My wife once read - Khana khana mana hai (Eating food is prohibited) - and she laughed so much that she couldnt learn anymore hindi lol!

Okay, here are little corrections:

Mujhe yaad nahin hain with a nasal n

Mujhe kuchh nahin (again a nasal n in the end) chahiye

Beech mein mat bolo! (the e in beech is stressed like beach in english; mein has the same nasal n)

One day we decided to visit Akshardam, as it is located not far from Pragati maidan we went there by autoriksha. Were four of us: two Indian guys, my friend and I.
And even in spite of Indian presence among us, drivers asked more money than it costs in reality.
I remember that guys tried four autorikshas before we finally caught a normal one.

Question affraid Pagal ho gaya??? Shocked Maybe it was not correct grammatically but he totally got me and it was his turn to scream now: Sorry, madam, sorry!!! Laughing Very Happy

BTW, Ritesh was good at explaining Hindi or translating into it or from it into English...I used to ask him for something like that whenever I needed it...he was always kind to respond fast...so u can also ask him to help you or come here and help all of us...Wink Razz
Savyonok is always very good at that... I love you
