    Re #21 above....."chaahindaina" not want....
    "chaahinchha" want

    So.....tapaailaai chiyaa chaahichha? Malaai chiyaa chaahindaina.

    on another posting about yes and no (19)...ho/hoina means it is/it isn't, not yes/no, but it can used as yes/no in casual conversation especially by westerners for sure.

    ref 16 above.....hajur is very respectful/honorific for you.....'ta' is the least respectful, for animals, ones own children, very close friends.

    So in order of least to most.....ta, timi, tapaai, hajur.
