This is another letter that doesn’t really have an equivalent in English. While in most Malayalam English words it is represented by zha, it isn’t quite how it phonetically sounds. Common Malayalam words that use this letter are: ‘മഴ’ (Mazha/Rain), ‘വഴക്ക്’ (Vazhakku/Scolding or Fight), ‘പഴം’ (Pazham/ Fruit essentially, but most often refers to Banana).
Naaku vadikan parayum if you don’t say it properly. :)
Yes! Naakku vadikkal was an important part of my childhood + learning Malayalam. The trick is in arching your tongue back and trying to saying Ra. That and practice. It’s definitely one of the hardest letter to pronounce in Malayalam.
My Son would Never Rape a Woman
My son would never rape a woman. It is brutal, disgusting and immoral. He simply isn’t capable of such a thing. She has obviously enticed him.
I wasn’t planning on eating the fruit salad, but I was subjected to pear pressure.
