  5. "Yes, I drink tea."

"Yes, I drink tea."

Translation:हाँ, मैं चाय पीता हूँ।

November 4, 2018



when this question was entered, everything was right except one word = चाय / entered हाँ, मैं पीता हूँ। the question for this forum is this: how does one know where to put the right words?


The object चाय must always precede the verb पीता हूँ in Hindi. I tea drink.


In the right place.


Is the same sentence also mai chay pita huun for female or is it different, if so how?


"Main chai peeti hoon" is feminine. The "peeta" is masculine.


in like informal prole hindi is it ok to drop the मैं?


I was going to say no because you don't take away the subject in Hindi but after thinking about it, if my friend asked me "Kya tu chai peeti hai?", I would answer (to this particular friend, not someone I don't know!) with "Haan, peeti hoon". So, I guess informally, it works but not to people older or strangers you don't know.


This is much like the previous comment, but with an english example.

You can drop that in an informal speech. Like when someone asks you "what are you doing?"
you could reply with "(i am) drinking tea" without the I am part. It is the same here. Everywhere else the subject is essential.


Has anyone else noticed that in the app, NONE of the nasal words have audio in ANY "Translation page" at ANY level?! Yet, the audio is there for the other areas.

Clearly, this is a broader issue within Hindi, something that does NOT need fixing page by page, but should be easy to fix at a coding level that covers that page and those particular words with those sounds.
