    Learn Tamil Through TFM

    Topic started by tigger (@ 68.78.33.162) on Sun Apr 13 12:13:57 EDT 2003.


    Hi all,

    I have learnt lots of Tamil words through tfm, but there are so many words that I still dont know the meaning of. I would love to improve my Tamil vocabulary, but resources are limited. I was wondering if we can have a thread that helps out in this regard. People post the words they dont understand and someone who knows responds with the answer. For this to succeed the old-timers have to get involved, bcos I dont know many younger guys who know much Tamil words

    Ex.

    1. samsaaram enbathu veenai..santhosham enbathu raagam.. xxx xxx illai
    I used xxx because I dont even know what he was saying. was it "salanam galadhi illai"? What does that mean?

    2. En mana vaanil siragai virikkum.. from Kasi. There is a line kalakalakala vena thulli kuthikkum sinnanchiru kalaiyey.. what does kalai mean?

    3. Anjanam. What does it mean? (Used in various songs)

    4. Uchi vaguntheduthu pichu poo vacha kili..What does this mean?

    Please answer people!

    curses: attrai = anru , anraiya = of that day
    It also means 'daily'. thingal = moon, month
    attrai thingal = moon of that day

    never knew in my life that Monday has something to do with moon or Thingal with 'nila'!! no wonder, spanish its lunes and french its lundi - variation of lune(moon).

    .,

    It is amazing how this is true even in the case of languages as disparate as thamizh and samskritham (Monday is soamavaasarah; soamah = the moon.) I won't be surprised if there is some conection in German too, given that the two words share the first three letters.

    Prabhu et al: It is Montag in German! I am sure
    you know it is Gnayiru (=Sun) for Sunday! Sonntag in German.
