Salaams,

The ones I use would be too mushy/gross for this forum  Shocked

Another popular one among previous generation of desis is "baat sunain...". Not sure how many of you know how thats used or means!

My Mum & Dad used to use that for each other Hard2Hit & akhan. I think it was so they didn't have to use each others names in front of us kids. But obviously in Bengali, sounds a bit different....

"Huncho ni?" ----------> "have you heard?" in Sylheti speak 

I could never understand why the older generation didn't have to use each others names, I find it quite funny. Thankfully, it seems to be changing now with gen x ditching some of those stupid customs.
And no, I've never known that Bengali is actually Sylheti, forget about huncho ni Tongue

There's two types of Bengali. The standard Bangla where usually people are from Dhaka. It sounds much nicer than The Sylheti speak where people obviously come from Sylhet region. Our Bangla is much more slang'ish & not as eloquent.

I guess the reason they use it, is because they're showing respect for each other. That's my understanding anyway. We don't usually call our elders by name, even siblings. I still call my older bro Bhaisaab!

Ditto with our Urdu, Hyderabadi Urdu is slangish whereas the real Urdu, spoken by people in North India, particularly Lucknow,Aligarh and Delhi is quite beautiful.

I guess it's SORT OF alright when it comes to showing some extra respect to older siblings or cousins, but I thought spouses are on the same level irrespective of the age factor, so I really don't think it's necessary.
My younger siblings call me Bhaiya Smiley

hey akhan bhaiya Grin *can't remember if he is a younger bro or not*

Is Hyderabadi Urdu the same as Dhikni Urdu? That is what my family speaks in Bangalore. My amma is from the North, so I guess her Urdu is more pure, if one can say that.

When I do speak to my family in Bangalore, I just speak basic Urdu, but they speak in that sharper Southern Urdu, which quite fun actually. Endearing names aside, for 'nahin" they use "Nahko" (or at least it sounds like that).

I am younger, 21.
And yea, Hyderabadi Urdu is the same as Dakhni Urdu(not dhikni), full fledged slang Wink
Nakko is used in place of nahin, hao in place of haan and a ton of other things. And it is funny, Hyderabadis have comedy and fun in their blood Grin

Aww, ma'sha'allah, Br. akhan, you look so mature in your pictures and at least your online behavior reflects that - I mean it.

Oops sorry for the misspelling.

Yeah, it is fun. My late Abba also spoke Kannada, and that is also a fun language to listen to! But yeah, love just sitting next to abba as he spoke to family back home (I was a bit shy back then, as I virtually had no Urdu skills, though my cousins of course would speak English with me, but when my Dadi was alive, she of course would want to talk to me and I always had trouble understanding her Sad and I only got to meet her once).

OK, hope we haven't digressed from the main topic.  Smiley
