English to Malayalam translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:hello, my name is Hayley what is your name?
it is people to people
Is it possible to have it in english letters, but malayalam pronouciation, and words?
if so please do so.
Explanation: I've given the meaning and English letters for the malayalam word below:
Hello, my name is Hayley. What is your name?
Namaskaaram, Ende' peru Hayley. Ningalude'/Ninde' peru endhanu?
Ende' = My
Peru = Name
Ningalude'/Ninde' both mean 'your'. Ningalude is used when the person you are speaking to is a lot older or with respect.
Ninde is used informally and among people of your own age group or younger.
'Namaskaaram, ente peru hayley. Ningalude perendhanu?'
Explanation: Normally greetings in the way of 'hello' in english is not used in malayalam. The namaskaram above is greetings but generally not used.
In more more simple terms it goes like this.
'Ente peru hayley, ningalude perendhanu?'
'ningalude' is 'your' in english but with respect. There is another 'your' which is 'ninte' and is normally used to address a person who is younger or equal like friends. (ninte perendhanu?).
Towards elderly it should be always ' ningalude' (formal or informal).
There is very formal word rarely used in written language 'thaangalude'.
If you are addressing a stranger on telephone you can use 'hello' as greeting now a days.
' hello, ente peru hayley. Ningalude perendhanu (or 'aarodanu njaan samsaarikkunnathu'- with whom am I speaking?)
Namaskaaram,ente peru Hayley ennanu,enthanu ningalaude peru?
Hayley=name need not be changed,so same
your= ningalude/ninte.('ningalude' is used to show respect to the person whom you are talking to)
