Dada as I know it means uncle. Big brother of my dad is my dada. Little brother of my dad is my kaka
If that is how you know it, you have a strange family! :)
I'm just joking with you -- Please don't take offense.
daadaa is most definitely grandfather! Big brother of dad can be taayaa ताया Little brother of dad is commonly chaachaa चाचा kaakaa is a different dialect or slang :)
In some locations in india dada is older brother in those locations adja or nana is grand father , but that is not formal hindi.
Yeah, in my regional dialect of English, we call our uncles "grandpa." It's just how we roll in our region. haha
Like many languages, there will be regional differences. I'm guessing Duolingo uses dādā (paternal grandfather), dādi (paternal grandmother), nānā (maternal grandfather), and nāni (maternal grandmother). In my region of India, we use tāiji, tāuji, chāchī, chāchā, buā (or phūphī), and phūphā for our father's side of the family; māmi, māmā, mausī, and mausā for our mother's side of the family.
I said patio instead of terrace and d it was marked wrong. Aren't they the same thing?
