Learn Marathi : Lesson 1.5: What I learned


The accompanying verb has to modify itself for plural pronouns. Lets see this with examples.

” आहे ” is a “Be” verb in Marathi.It is like “is” and ” am”  of English. More can be read  here :  Be verbs in Marathi.

Simple it is, but a slight modification is there when you will use “आहे” for plural form of pronouns. In English, we would say, We are Indian,You are Indian and They are Indian. The  grammar rule tells us to use  “are” for all plural form of pronouns. However the Marathi be verb “आहे” takes a suffix behind depending on the person you are describing.

“आम्ही आहोत ”  and ” तुम्ही आहात “.

Lets read the following tables to get a detailed picture. Do not get disheartened by the amount of text you have to read. Just concentrate on  highlighted words.Do no try to memorize, rather solve an exercise on it so that you get a quick and interesting revision.

Now read these sentences loudly and clearly.

    I think shiktat is wrongly used in question 2, shikta is more appropriate as per the rules mentioned

  14. Krishna Kant Ojha says:

    1. आम्ही TCS मध्ये काम करतो.
    2. ते मुंबई ला राहतात.

    In sentence 1, you use ‘मध्ये’ for ‘in’, while sentence 2, you use ‘ला’. While I have observed that in grammar section 1, you used ‘ला’ for ‘to’.

    I would appreciate if you could please elaborate.

    • Akshay says:

      Mee Mumbait/madhye Rahto and Mumbai la Rahto both sentences are correct and they both mean ” I live in Mumbai”. Their usage depends on the situation.
      If you are Delhi and want to tell someone that you live in Mumbai, You will say : Mee Mumbai la Rahto
      If you are Mumbai and want to tell someone that you live in Mumbai then you can say : Mee Mumbait Rahto.

    I really like your site. It’s wonderful and I’m glad that you’ve worked so hard on it. Because of your hard work, I’ve learned a lot. But I noticed up till this point the feminine verb conjugations are present much less than the male conjugations for he/she. I really need those conjugations because I don’t know enough Marathi to guess what they are on my own. Could you please include/make tables to teach how to say those things? And secondly, assuming all of the characters in the above lesson are female only, would it still be “आम्ही मुंबई ला राहतो”, “ते मुंबई ला राहतात”, or “तुम्ही मुंबई ला राहता”?
    Thank you!

    How do you say तू मराठी सीखता है, तू मराठी सीखती है, वह मराठी सीखता है, वह मराठी सीखती है?

    • Akshay says:

      तू मराठी सीखता है, = तू मराठी शिकतोस
      तू मराठी सीखती है, =तू मराठी शिकतेस.
      वह मराठी सीखता है,=तो मराठी शिकतो
      वह मराठी सीखती है = ती मराठी शिकते.
