    excellent Marathi guide your website is! Thanks for that.

    one doubt : does “aavadto” and “aavadte” at the end depend on the person speaking or the activity being described?


    • Akshay says:

      Hi Ned. If it is activity then it generally takes aavadte otherwise aavadte or avadto depends on the gender of person being described (not person speaking).

      for example:
      activity: mala cricket khelaayla aavadte
      person: mala kareena avadte
      person:mala sachin avadto

  2. This is one thing I found really confusing in Marathi. So it’s a sort of exception then .. aavad does not literally translate to ‘like’ in English.. it’s more like describing a relation of liking between you and the activity but with you as the object!
