Telling your “Daily Routine” in Marathi…..

marathi be verbs present tense learn marathi at mindurmarathi.com

Welcome to the very first class on ” Introduction to Marathi verbs”. Let’s learn Marathi verbs in present tense first.

Verbs show action. They show what main actor of your sentence is doing or what is happening around him.

” Ajay eats snakes”.

The main actor (noun) of this sentence is doing the action of  “eating”.

The root verb here is ” To eat”. The root form is called  infinitive form.

In English the infinitive of a verb is always  ‘to ___’, i.e to read, to speak, to walk etc. No matter which tense you are talking in,the infinitive form remains same. It is the main identity of the verb.This form takes a different suffix in different tenses. Like in present tense ,to eat is used as “eat” , in past tense it becomes “ate” and in continuous tense it becomes “eat-ing”. Marathi is no different.The infinitive form of verb ends with “णे”.  For example : उठ-णे (to wake ) , खा-णे(to eat) etc. Very similar to  Hindi उठ-ना or खा-ना.

This infinitive form of the verb will take different suffixes in different tenses. In present tense, you say ” मी उठ-तो ( I wake up) or “मी खा-तो” (I eat) . The use of suffix ” तो-ती-ते  depends upon the gender of actor of your sentence. e.g. ” सुलभ उठ-तो ”  &  ” राणी उठ-ते”.

Lets study only those Marathi verbs first which can be used in your day-to-day life.

    Q8 is good :)

  2. Bhupesh says:

    I wonder where do we use ती then, please clarify

    • Akshay says:

      ती is Marathi equivalent of English ” She”.
      for example : She eats a cake = ती केक खाते.
      She goes = ती जाते.

      but if you are talking about -ती as a suffix behind the root verb like तो/ते, then it is used nowhere. You might have heard root verb-ते but certainly not root verb-ती.
      for example : A boy would say मी खा-तो
      A girl would say मी खा-ते but not मी खा-ती

  3. Amitabha Roy says:

    This lesson is very simillar to “Your introduction in Marathi…”. I’ve read both more than 5 times and discovered the fact when I’m taking a note of these lessons. 😀

    • Akshay says:

      Yes actually, it is. But, in your introduction in Marathi, rules for making sentences in present tense were not explained. This explains and also begins the verbs and their modifications in different tenses.
