All sentences - Second Person Singular ( 'You' ) - Informal Conversations

Friday, 3 April 2009

IMPORTANT: To learn Telugu Easily and Fastly using this website, I advise you to go to the homepage and go through all my posts. You will find links to all posts in the homepage. Ignore this message if you are already in the homepage.

I advise you to go through this post before you go through this one. It explains in detail all the different forms a verb can take w.r.t all subjects(persons) in English.

Below I wrote some sentences concerning with second person singular that is 'You'. Observe them and learn how Telugu words form a sentence. Observe the modifications to certain words as they are used in the sentence.

Usually the last sounds of last words of certain sentences are left out while speaking(For example, 'emi chestunnav?' is used while speaking/talking to a friend instead of the actual 'emi chestunnavu?' for asking 'what are you doing?'. This(the presence of sound 'vu' at the end of actual sentences) is the major case whether you will observe this. Like this there are a few others also). This you might have observed in your own mother tongue too. The same is the case here. Below I am writing complete sentences, but the last sounds in some sentences may be left out while speaking. This you have to identify from listening to Telugu conversations.

Please note: The initial subject may be left out while speaking in most of the cases as is found in many languages while speaking directly to a person.

Please note: The English part has three lines. The first line is the Telugu transliteration. The second line is a word by word (respectively) translation of the Telugu sentence to English (It is almost correct, but not exactly correct, it only gives a rough idea, but the third line aptly conveys the exact meaning of the actual Telugu sentence). The third one is the usual complete sentence translation into English.

I REQUEST you all to follow the "Guidelines for pronouncing the transliterated text" that are present at the beginning of this post to AVOID MISPRONUNCIATION

After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any method you possibly can remove me from that service? Thanks! real money casino
