I was talking over the phone and confirming my number by saying ' eppathu iidu (25) nalavatha naakku (44) epatha eradu (22) moovatha naakku (34) '. When my daughter, who was listening to me, wondered how to say the numbers in Badaga , I realised that it might be possible that many youngsters may not be knowing how to say the numbers in our language. Hence this attempt of bringing out the uniqueness of Badaga Baashe.

Hope this thread will bring out many more 'hidden gems'.

I found this interesting article on the web. Is it not fascinating that so much research is done on our language ?


http://www.phonetics.ucla.edu/appendix/languages/badaga/badaga.html

The site basically talks about plain / half retroflex / full retroflex

For example : KASU can mean coin or remove

HU can mean flower or worm
