In this article we are going to learn about basic conversations: let’s talk! , we bring to you some examples of basic, day to day conversations. Because language, at the end of the day, is a tool for communication.
Let us begin by looking at how introductions should take place in the Sanskrit language. However, because Sanskrit is not our first language, we will have to resort to English. Look at the table below to comprehend the basics.
|English||My||name||is||Alex||My name is Alex.|
|Sanskrit||mam||naam||Alexaha||Mam naam alexaha.|
The table given above indicates that in a Sanskrit sentence, “is” is removed and as far as the introduction of a person belonging to the Masculine gender is concerned, the sound “ha” is added at the end.
Now let us look at the introduction of a person belonging to the Feminine gender in Sanskrit language.
|English||My||Name||is||Sita||My name is Sita|
|Sanskrit||Mam||naam||Sita||Mam naam Sita.|
The table given above gives an indication that “is” is not used even while introducing a member of the Feminine gender, however, unlike in the Masculine proper noun, the syllable “aha” is not used.
A difference can be seen in the appropriate manner of asking questions to the Masculine and Feminine gender in Sanskrit. Look at the table given below to attain more clarity as far as the formation of interrogative sentences is concerned in the Sanskrit language.
|English||What||is||your||name||What is your name?|
|Sanskrit(male)||kim||bhavataha||naam||Bhavataha naam kim?|
|Sanskrit (female)||kim||bhavatyaaha||naam||Bhavatyaaha naam kim?|
Looking at the above table will make it easy for you to determine the sentence structure as well as come to terms with the fact that “you” and “your” both, in Sanskrit, will have different words as pronouns for two different genders.
