There are four singers in that song. The fourth singer, by the name of Francis Waz, sings in what I guessed is Konkani. The singer's name seems Goan.
Nimii
Francis Waz is a typical Goan/mangalore xian name!!

Yep then it has to be konkani. Lets wait for Pradeep's response.

Nimii
There are so many konkani songs!!

My favourite one is Rosalyn mujha mogaachi.. shobita bangaaracha kesaachi.. I must search for the tape of konkani songs I have smile1.gif

Pradeep
Yes its Goan Konkani... I could only understand few words from those lines.

attuh danpaaruh makka odi needuh kaadakkuh *yawn*

attuh = now
danpaaruh = afternoon
makka = I/me
odi = big/long (tho long would actually be deeguh - but with this context it will be odi)
needuh = nap/sleep
kaadakkuh = take

Wow!! So there used to be a thread for learning konkani too!!!

I would love to get a working knowledge of this language.

Will someone restart this?

Also, since the pronunciations are so critical, would someone post audio clips along with the sentences here?

Simple, used-in-daily-life sentences...

LOL... GKS, gotcha!!!!!!!!!!!!

Google out 'empath' and you'll be surprised to learn something really interesting!!

And if you have the patience, get enlightened by reading 'The Empath Report'. You can easy find it by googling.

It's a real eye-opener... study.gif
Nimii
http://www.geocities.com/christabelle67/Th...pathIndex1.html

he he he!!

Empath: n. 1. A person who has the ability to experience empathy towards another person, and/or animate/inanimate objects, in part or from all of the above definition. 2. A person who is sensitive to the emotions in others.

Haan there is a major difference..

Goan/Mangalore Xian speak somewhat similar

North Canara Konkani is a bit different (probably Marati influence)

South Canara Konkani has the influence of Kannada in it.

N smile1.gif
gkshyam
Hmm....Yes Nimmi....I guessed so.....that there might be some difference....Thanks for pointing that out to me... thumbs-up.gif

PS: Btw...I know a song in Konkani....."Kaay Bolelo Kombdo Maazo ...Mai Makaa Dilelo.....Sakaali Uthun Kombdo Maazo Saadhu Ghaarntalo...." [the meaning is....something like.....I can't find my cock...(Kombdo)......since I woke up in the morning...I find it missing....something of that sort.....]

Guess that should be North Kanara Konkani....(has some Marathi influence na???)...what about your Vishesh Tippani on this??? smile.gif
Nimii
Nope Shyam this too is typical goanese konkani! Kaai bolelo.. (Goan konkani does have an infl of marati too!)

Nimii, it hurts and hurts and hurts. Really. To be able to read all those words, to ACTUALLY make sense of them and sense HOW close they are to marathi - and not to know how to pronounce them...

maje dukh jaana??

I SO want to be able to speak Konkani like my peeps in Goa do! With those nasal intonations. It hurts me to listen to Konkani spoken by someone who's lived in M'rashtra most of his life ... yours truly for one. You may get all the words right, but if don't get that tone, you ain't there! Kalle mare tuka?

Of course!!

Provided you can give a step by step procedure and the exact quantity of ingredients.

You see, I do not want to depend upon Hojo to guide me wink2.gif
Nimii
No who the h*** is Hojo?

Step to step... kyon?

1. Ingredients

2. Method of preparation..

3. Garnishing..

Wont that suffice?

I am gonna reproduce my ggrandma's cookery book (will tell you in pm who she was!)

This whole "give me recipe and I will cook" doesn't really work well for me sad1.gif. I belong to the traditional indian male "give me food and I will eat" biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

So when can I visit you Nimmijii for the great konkaNii food ?? biggrin.gif (sorry for the "maan na maan main teraa mehemaan approach biggrin.gif)

anyway, here is my contribution to this thread. (was planning to do it for a long time)
This is a konkaNii poem by poet borkar read by pu. la. deshpaa.nDe.
I will try to transliterate the lyrics and then hope that some konkaNii guru will translate it. (I understand the gist quite OK, may be borkar's konkaNii is maraThisized, or may be konkaNii is not very difficult to understand for someone who understands marathi)

so here is
tyaa disaa vaDaakaDe
poet: baa. bha. borakar
read by: pu. la. deshapaanDe

lyrics to follow


Nimii
Mandrake by the time I teach how to cook a konk dish I might turn into something else.. courtesy you!

Nm thank you!!!!!!! I shall wait for the lyrics, downloads to door ki baat hai.

Ok here goes

devanaagarii (I suppose that is the script used by konkaNii)

त्या दिसा वडाकडे गडद तिनीसाना
मंद मंद वाजत आयली तुजी गो पैंजणा

मौन पडले सगळ्या राना शिरशिरून थांबली पाना
कवळी जाग आयली तणा झेंबता झेंबताना

पैसुल्यानं वाजली घांट दाटलो न्हैचो कंठ काठ
सावळ्यांनी घमघमाट सुटलो त्या खिणा

फुल्ल्यो वैर चंद्रज्योती रंध्रांनी लागल्यो वाती
नवलांची जौत लागली शकुनलक्षणा

गळ्या सुका डोळ्या दुका लकलकली जाउनी थीका
नकळताना येक जाली आम्ही दोघाय जणा

वडफळांच्या अक्षदात कितलो वेळ न्हायचो न्हायचो
मुपले सगळे चंद्रलोक इंद्रनंदना

त्यातले काय नुल्ले आज सगळ्या जीणे आयली सांज
तरी अकस्मात तुजी वाजती पैंजणा

कान्सुलानी भोवता भुवर अंगार दाटे फुलता चवर
पट्टी त्यान्ना सपना तीच घट्टी जाग्रणा

त्या दिसा वडाकडे गडद तिनीसाना
मंद मंद वाजत आयली तुजी गो पैंजणा
