Ji is respectful like you are talking to your boss or you are taloing to someone very respectfully while han is a casual form. Well haan is used in several formal places too but ji is not said to freinds and younger people or someone who isn't formal...we use ji in freinds as sarcasm
Duolingo hasnt given any explanation about that symbol above the line; like what sound does it make or how does it modify a pronounciation or anything. I'm talking about the almost half-circle with the dot in it. Can anybody explain this? (Ive been calling it 'happy cyclops' cuz it looks like a smiley face with just one eye) like so, but turned clockwise 90 degrees. •)
Hi IAmCrazyHope!! I'm here to explain you about the symbol Chandra Bindu. The symbol which is above the line is called as Chandra Bindu. This word is derived from Chandra and Bindhi, Chandra means moon in Hindi and Bindhi is a dot which Indians keep on their fore head and here, the curve looks similar to moon and that dot looks similar to a bindhi. Chandra Bindu gives a sound like 'aan' and the letter here is pronounced as 'Haan'.
