Luke I am your grandfather


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LornaMacC

I had the same thought, lol. I wonder how you would say "I am your father, Luke." Would Luke come first?

Either 'लूक, मैं तुम्हारा पिता हूँ' or मैं तुम्हारा पिता हूँ, लूक' is fine.

I was literally about to post this, and I was thinking of how funny and original it would have been XD

नाना is mother's father, दादा is father's father.

In Australia, people call their grandmother 'nanna'. This is going to trip me up!

I'm your maternal father

I just left a gap between grand and father.

Why tumhara and not tumhare? When all other references to dada use the honorific plural version?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vinay92

This sentence is referring to oneself. So, an honorific is unnecessary (you can't be rude to yourself).

In some dialects, people refer to themselves using the 'royal we' (they use हम even while talking about just themselves). In that case, the sentence would be 'हम आपके नाना हैं' or 'हम तुम्हारे नाना हैं'

Ahh, that makes sense. Thank you for clearing that up. Also, congratulations on the Level 25 in French. :)
