    The Tamil Thread தமிழ்

    Assalamu Aleikum & Wannakammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    How many Tamil speakers are there here? I have MANY Tamil friends and I am quite proficient in the language compared to other Pakistanis

    Anyway, now I am seriously looking to learn as much as possible Most likely NOT how to read and write, but at least so that I can converse with people.

    I know 10-12 words/phrases by today. But first I wan't to know if there are any Tamils here?

    And how big a difference is it between Indian & Sri Lankan Tamil?

    Peace out! Love you all

    Indian and Srilankan tamil differs in its slang and also some set of words used are completely unknown to the other side. Srilankan tamil has a better pure tamil vocabulary and Indian tamil is being influenced by other languages particulary sanskrit.

    Never knew that there is a thread existing on Tamil.

    I am Tamilian and the Tamil that we speak n use here in Tamilnadu is VASTLY different from Sri Lankan ones. As MIB rightly pointed out Slang, Accent, and Words are very different between the Tamils (Indian ones n Sri Lankan ones).

    Since the OP lives in Norway (I guess he is) I expect him to have mainly Sri Lankan Tamil friends.BTW, Nordic countries have majority Tamils from Sri Lanka.

    As a language Tamil is one of the oldest in the world with classical status to it (older than any other South Indian Languages and equivalent to Hindi in terms of Origin).

    Good to see PPers discussing these kind culture/linguistics related topics, I love PP

    Very true. I am from Northern Tamilnadu and my accent, diction and use of certain words are very different from Central n Southern Tamilnadu.

    But most of the movies made from Tamilnadu has Northern Tamilnadu accent (recent trend is Southern Accent - Madurai Lingo)

    BTW, Saajid are you Tamil as well?

    Cool

    TBH, In the last 15 years or so Taminglish (Combination of Tamil n English) is the unofficial spoken language in most of the Tamil movies.

    I am yet to see Vaanam, but heard from friends that its a decent movie. Love the Yuvan Shankar Raja's music in that film (especially Vaanam and Evandi Unna Peththaan songs).

    Lol haha well I am planning to watch the last installment and have read all 7 books during adolescence years...so I guess I am a Harry Potter nerd. Better than being a twilight nerd though

    And my Tamil friend is a HP nerd like me and we joke quite a bit about it so I was hoping to see her reaction if I could pull it off in Tamil

    Edit-I may have had a crush on Snape lolll

    I m not so advanced but worth a try it's not exact


    "Neenga ready avunga nalla padum solli tharen"
    You get ready I ll teach you a lesson
    The pronunciation would be like anyyyy without the "a" sound And just like "the" say ghe Then it will become neenga "ny-ghe"
    Ready is English so don't need
    Avunga pronunciation would be "ah vu ghe"
    Nalla - would be nhall like you say dhall tell nhall and add le. Nhall-le
    Padum - That should sound like par dum Par-dum
    Solli -So and Lee. Equals solli. So-Lee (remember Brett Lee instead of brett say ,so Lee )
    Tharen . Ta and ren

    Avid,

    Can you teach me some words commonly used while talking to autowallahs? The moment you speak in English they look to fleece you.

    This one time, me and a Punjabi friends wee coming back to our college campus from outside. The auto driver acted like he did not understand a word of English or Hindi and it was very hard for us to bargain. So, whilst inside the campus, my friend was swearing at the auto-driver in Hindi and the guy is like - Sir, aapka campus aa gaya to aap mujhe gaali dene lage?


    My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.

    Sure Doc

    here is a short one (using mainly Madras Tamil)

    1)With Autowallahs its always better to start with words like either Anna or Yeanga (its like Hello/Excuse me in Tamil) or use even Sir.

    2) Once you get his attention, your next target would be to ask for his willingness to take you to the place of your choice. This can be said in the following way For Eg. Naan Mount Road vara poganum, Varuveengalaa? (I wanna go to Mount Road, will you take me there? )

    3) If he says Yes (or Sari in Tamil), then your next question obviously would be how much you have to pay for that ride? This can be said as For eg. Mount Road vara Pogurathukku evvalavu charge? (How much is the charge for going up to Mount Road?)

    4) If you are willing to pay the charge that he is asking for then that's the end of the story and don't forget to say Thanks Anna/Sir at the end of the drive to make him happy.

    Additional bit, while traveling in a auto if you recognize the place that you want to get down passes by then you can say the same to Autowallah For Eg. Ingayey Enna Irakki Vittudunga (which means "Drop me here itself" or "I would like to get down here itself")

    (If possible , try to avoid speaking to Autowallahs while travelling n act as if you are busy with messaging or sight seeing)

    I don't know how much of help these words of mine would be for you, but feel free to shoot any questions regarding Tamil anytime

    My friend couldn't stop laughing. It was great to say our personal joke in Tamil. Thanks avid! She knows someone told me how to say it but I keep on denying

    She messaged me back saying this:

    It was good fun reading your experience V_M

    "Illai...Dumbledore endra naai annappallai " I think she is saying that "Nope! Dumbledore alias Dog has not send it " (don't know why she said Dumbledore as a Dog though?)

    One of the oldest language still spoken today, my mother tongue as well.

    Drop any sentences needing translation and i would be glad to help . Same goes for Kannada too (language of the neighboring state of Karnataka capital city being Bangalore).Let me start with a few words.

    Vannakam means hello.

    Idli sambar - inseparable twins, idli- rice cake, white and round and fluffy. sambar- goes along with idli ,basically a vegetable stew containing various flavors.Goes along with rice as well. Popular in south india.

    Thalaivar- literal meaning leader. used in sync with Rajnikanth.

    Kolaveri - the way you feel when non tamilians come up to you and keep asking the meaning of the word every day.

    All the above sentences are made of somewhat purer form of Tamil words (not the usual spoken Tamil)
    A typical challange goes something like this:

    Dei Macha/Kanna, Thothu Kullikaruthukku Thaiyyara Iru...

    1)With Autowallahs its always better to start with words like either Anna or Yeanga (its like Hello/Excuse me in Tamil) or use even Sir.

    2) Once you get his attention, your next target would be to ask for his willingness to take you to the place of your choice. This can be said in the following way For Eg. Naan Mount Road vara poganum, Varuveengalaa? (I wanna go to Mount Road, will you take me there? )
    Keeping it short always helps. Just say "Mount Road Povengala"? "Evvalo"?

    I think you meant "Errakki". "Irukki" means Tight.
