Just so you new learners know, and I hope duolingo takes note too, this is an common insult used by school bullies to call someone with glasses. Not funny, duolingo.
In English it is the same insult, although I haven't heard anyone use it in a long time.
At least we'll know if someone is being insulting.
It could be considered an insult, but I prefer to think of two creatures with 4 eyes: the Whirligig Beetle, and Anableps, a genus of fish with four eyes, as well.
धन्यवाद, thank you.
Can someone refresh me on why आँख is pluralized with the bindu rather than just ए? Apologies if this is a stupid question.
Plurals with just ए without the bindu are masculine (कुत्ते, बच्चे etc). आँख is feminine.
B'cuz Aankh is singular and aankhein is plural..
So to make it plural we add ain at last and a anusvar(bindu). Another example is Vah Kha rha hai. (Singular)
He is eating
Ve Kha rhe hain
They r eating
Hope u understood
