#24 I'm just learning, so my spellings are probably bad. Transliteration without using the IPA is always confusing. I found these useful because as I learned each word, I started hearing other forms of the words and started to put together how the language is constructed. It's a beautiful language! Hello = Namaskaram Teacher = = Guru Goodbye = Selavu, untamu/untanu, mali kaludamu Goodnight = Shubh raatri Hello. My name is Rufus = Namaskaram (andi). Na pay-ru Rufus. Whats your name? = Me pay-ru amiti? (or just "meru?" How are you? = Yala una ru Good Im fine = Bagun na nu "I am a useless drunkard" = Nenu paniki ranni tagobuthu I = Nenu Me = Naku You = Nuvu He = Attadu She = Aamay It = Adi We = Manamu You (w/ respect) Meru They = Wallu This = Edi That = Adi Here = Ekada There = Akada Where = Yahkada When = Apu du How = Yala What = Amiti / anti Why = Endaku
