How do you say "Thank You"?

Recommended Posts

I think it was a bad idea to cover the whole language in one thread.. so lets have different threads for different phrases :)

Soo how do you say "thank you" in your language, complete with pronounciation !!

Hindi -- Dhanyawaad (break it down as dhan-ya-waad)
Urdu -- Shukriya (shook-ri- yaa)

In Farsi: Mam'noon or mer'si

Not exactly [i]my[/i] language, but in tamil it is Nandri.

Nan as in short for Nancy. dri as in driven.

How [i]many[/i] speeches have I sat through waiting for those words: Nandri, Vanakkam... :lol:

Keep in mind that it isn't a one for one word comparison across languages. Demeanor and other parts of the grammatical structure of the sentences indicate gratitude. However, as a first approximation Shukriya is very useful..

Okay.......here goes.....

Ndebele = Siyabonga (seeya bonga pronounced as in born without the 'n' ga, sort of a nasal 'bong') :)

'Shona = Tatenda

Afrikaans (spoken in South Africa) - thank you - dankie (dunkie) :)
