हे पान अनाथ आहे.
जानेवारी २०११च्या सुमारास या पानाला विकिपीडियावरील इतर कोणत्याही पानावरुन दुवे नव्हते. या पानावरील माहितीशी सुसंगत पानांवरुन येथे दुवे द्या आणि मग हा साचा काढून टाका.

मद्रास तमिळ किंवा मेड्रास भाषै ( तमिळमध्ये: மெட்ராஸ் பாஷை )

ह्या लेखाचा/विभागाचा इंग्रजी किंवा अमराठी भाषेतून मराठी भाषेत भाषांतर करावयाचे बाकी आहे. अनुवाद करण्यास आपलाही सहयोग हवा आहे. ऑनलाईन शब्दकोश आणि इतर सहाय्या करिता भाषांतर प्रकल्पास भेट द्या.

, is a colloquial slang of Tamil language spoken in the city of चेन्नई, India (previously known as Madras). It is a loose polyglot blend of तमिळ and English, with loanwords from Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi and उर्दू भाषा.ह्याच कारणामुळे मद्रास भाषै (मेड्रास तमिळ) साठी हल्ली टॅंग्लीश हा शब्दप्रयोग आस्तित्वात आला आहे.. जरी हिंग्लीश आणि टॅंग्लीश (तमिळ+इंग्लिश) ह्या इंग्रजी भाषेच्या बोली असल्यातरी त्या पूर्णपणे भिन्न आहेत,हिंग्लीश (हिंदी+इंग्लिश)चा संबंध बऱ्याच अंशी पिंग्लीश (पंजाबी+इंग्लिश) वगैरे उत्तरेतील भाषांशी असू शकतो ज्या हिंदी सारख्या आहेत.तमिळ ही इंडो युरोपिअन गटात मोडत नसल्याने त्यात हिंदी शब्द असण्याचे काहीच कारण नाही त्यामुळे टॅंग्लीश ही एक भिन्नच बोली आहे

After Madras Bashai became somewhat common in Madras, it became a source of satire for early Kollywood movies from the 1950s, in the form of puns and double entendres. Subsequent generations in चेन्नई identified with it and absorbed English constructs into the dialect, making it what it is today.


Madras bashai favours Tamil syntactic structures, with heavy use of English words..

The following examples illustrates the heavy use of English words, even for basic concepts:

English तमिळ Madras bashai
वेगाने जा! Viraivāga Sel! feeda-ā pō!
सरळ जा! Nerāga Sel! (Adverb Verb) Staita po! (Adverb Verb)
(also Steittaa po!)

Code-switching also plays a very important role in Madras bashai. For instance, a person aggrieved with the English in this article may plaintively wail:

Inta mātiri full-ā English speak-paa people like me eppai understand paartu?
How are people like me to understand this sort of full English speech?

किंवा खऱ्या तमिळभाषेतील वाक्य न समजल्याने एखादा विद्यार्थी नकारार्थी मान हलवत महाविद्यालयातील विद्यार्थ्यांसमोर देखील असे म्हणेल ::

फ्युचर जेनरेशन ऍल्लाम् फूल्ल- इंग्लिश-दान् पेचूवांक् pēcuvānka.
भविष्यातील पिढी पूर्णपणे इंग्रजीतच संभाषण करतील असे दिसते.

इथे हे नमूद करणे महत्त्वाचे ठरेल जर हेच वाक्य तमिळ मध्ये व्यक्त करायचे असते:
"वा तलैमुई ऍल्लाम्‌ मुलुक्क आंगिल्मदान् पेचूवांक्"

Vaa talaimuai ellām mulukka ānkilamtān pēcuvānka,

even in a colloquial form (as evidenced by the verb, pēcuvānka, as opposed to pēcuvārka), the word choice itself would make the sentence sound lofty and formal; words such as talaimuai are associated with literature, not everyday speech.[ संदर्भ हवा ]

anka (அங்க) annana (அன்னண்ட) There
Thamatham aagum (தாமதம் ஆகும்) Lettaagum (லேட்டாகும்) It would take a while to carry out your service. Some of the service providers use this phrase to dissuade the customers that they are not willing to carry out the request now. Typically small eateries in Chennai say this when the restaurant is yet to commence its operation for business for the day. Autorickshaw and Share Auto drivers use this word when they want to express a view to the customers that they are unwilling to ply the specified route requested by the customer/commuter.

Readers can understand immediately that this was done to save time, so that in the same period of time a Madras Tamilar can convey 1.5 times that of a Madurai, Tirunelveli Tamilar and 3 times that of an Erode Tamilar and 5 times that of a Coimbatore Tamilar (depending on the length of the drawl, like 'yaeeeeeeenunga?') One anomaly to this shortening rule is, some words get suffixed with the syllable 'ka'. So, summa = summaka, dhoora = dhooraka.


Some तमिळ words are pronounced differently from Madurai Tamil (considered the standard dialect). This practice is very similar to other dialects of Tamil. The pronunciation differences are usually accounted for by morphed and/or deleted vowels.

द्विशब्द उत्तर असलेले प्रश्न[संपादन]

Questions with yes or no answers are framed by saying the statement whose truth is to be verified (using the participle if necessary) and then saying aa at the end with a rising inflexion like a question. The meaning of the aa is roughly analogous to Is it?. If the statement already ends in an aa or other interfering vowel sound, then the questioning aa can be made vaa in the interest of euphonics. Some speakers tend to carry the -aa even into full English conversations from force of habit. e.g.: You finished it aa? and also sometimes shortened to Finished-aa?

However, phrases like Late-aa? and Ready-aa? are usually used by the younger generation, and phrases of Madras Bashai in the above column are never used in polite form, and are usually used as street Tamil.
