Users by language

HelloEdit

  • Bhagadatta (Sanskrit: भगदत्त) means "given by God".
  • My name is Madhav Pandit.
  • I'm an admin here and I work mainly in Sanskrit, Middle Indo-Aryan, Konkani, Kannada and Proto-Indo-Iranian.

Wiki workEdit

  • My contributions and some cool stats.
  • The languages I work with are displayed in the box above.
  • Over 95% of my work at wiki are at English Wiktionary; the following are my contributions to other wikis:
    • Hindi Wiktionary: [1]
    • Kannada Wiktionary: [2]
    • Spanish Wiktionary: [3]
    • English Wikipedia: [4]
    • Hindi Wikipedia: [5]
    • Kannada Wikipedia: [6]

Languages and scriptsEdit

LanguagesEdit

  • I am proficient in English and Hindustani (Hindi/Urdu).
    • I speak Standard Hindi and the Deccani dialect (specifically, the Goan variety of the Deccani dialect of Hindustani).
  • I was born to Karnatakan parents who moved to the neighbouring state of Goa before I was born. Consequently, I grew up speaking Kannada at home and Konkani everywhere else. I can comprehend all dialects of Kannada but am most comfortable in:
    • Havigannada
    • Kundagannada
    • Bangalore Kannada
  • Konkani is my second mother tongue and I can understand and speak Marathi too though not as fluently as Konkani.
  • I took French in 8th grade & learnt it for 3 years but my knowledge of spoken French is very, very basic and very, very limited.

ScriptsEdit

Growing up in Goa meant that I would not be educated in Kannada, so I had to teach myself the Kannada script in my teenage years. Excepting the Latin and the Devanagari scripts, all scripts I can read were taught to me by myself.

    • I am most comfortable in the Latin alphabet and I can read and write the Devanagri script quite easily as well.
    • While dealing with the transliterations on the internet, specifically on wiktionary, I taught myself to read the Cyrillic, Arabic and Greek scripts.
