Namaste everyone! Can you make a sentence using the word  "slow" in Hindi?

Hi Donna,


Thanks for your post!


Your observation is quite good and accurate too!


The reason why the word "kripayaa" isn't used here is because in spoken Hindi, we don't use it. "kripayaa" is only used in written Hindi, and this lesson is more focused on giving you an idea of how the sentences are spoken.


Furthermore, in Hindi, it is considered that when you use a respectful tone with the usage of words like "aap" and "SakaTe hain", "please" becomes implicit.


But if you still want to use the word while speaking such sentences, use the English word, because that will sound more natural and more like a Hindi native speaker.


If you still have any doubts about this issue or have any other questions, please do contact us.


All the best!

The sentences has the word "please" in it, yet "please" (krpya) is not found in the Hindi sentences.

Hi Elle,


Thanks for posting!


Slight correction for your sentence:

main hiNDii DHiire-DHiire Siikh rahii huun (I am assuming you are a female). That's how a native speaker would say it.


To answer your question, "Se" in "phir Se" and "DHiire Se" is generally a colloquial way of saying it, but in most cases you can use just "DHiire" or "Phir" alone too. So, you can say, "DHiire boLo" as well as "DHiire Se boLo" (Speak slowly) or "phir boLo" or "phir Se boLo" (Say again).


All the best!

Hello Sophie,


Thanks for your comments. In Hindi, sakTi and sakTa are the masculine and feminine forms respectively of the verb can. And dohraaNaa is not an irregular verb. Please do write if you have any questions.


Cheers!
