The Bengalooru Slonguaze Dictionary

If you are dying to be hip with the latesht Bangalore street slang but do not know how, look no further I say! For here is a yo man service rendered unto the kanglish slanguage, compiled by Vidushi PriKutty and Vidwans Kasyaapagowdru and Bykaradoddanna (ie, my kindself), otherwise known as:

The Bengalooru Slonguaze Dictionary
A compilation of the latest slang words in the Kanglish language for daily use.

Aa? : Universal question tag. (is it? are they? was she? shall we? etc.) Often mistaken by non - south indians as mispronunciation. When an auto driver asks you "Leftaa?" he means "Left, is it?" Variation: "na?" used when the last sound in the question is a vowel. "Koramangala na?"

Adjushtu: adjust. Most important word that originates from the accomodative nature of all Bangaloreans. "Solpa adjusht maadi shiva." "Sir one more banana buying means it will adjusht within 10 rupees." "Sir traffic signal jump fine kodi." "Urgent ithu saar, solpa adjusht maadi"

Adu bere : That also. (That was all I needed). "Adu bere kedu"

AJM: Short for Akkan Jusht Missu (Lit: Elder Sister just missed) 1. Minor disappointment 2. Narrow escape. "Aye ticket siktheno?" "Illa lo, AJM agoythu." Do not use in polite company!

Bykaradoddanna!!! nee thumba sakkat :-)....

RustyNeurons said...

Not Bad!(patting self) I knew quite many of them already :)
Man! your hold on the language is quite good! ;P

Bikerdude said...

Thank you thank you tamu and rusty. Must say a lot of help came in from pri and kasyaapagowdru.

rusty: apparently 75% of kannada slang has been around since the 40s! Time to change that eh?

RustyNeurons said...

Yeah, I would have expected IT revolution in B'lore to have thrown up some more in true software style. Looks people are too 'bisi' coding!

SloganMurugan said...


comment_raja said...

Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho: Uttered while examining person, up and down,and then saying things like "neevella elli", or "bandiyaa baa baa" - in order to make person in question feel like a complete ass.

Tapan said...

Brilliant thing you've got going here. What made me misty eyed was 'just miss', which me and my cousins love to pronounce as 'jaat mees aato maaraya..'. And yea, 'naan en helthene andre' deserves an entry of it's own... it's the most beaten to death sentence ever. :)

Mo said...

Thankies for the brilliant compilation!

And sheesh, I have been using some of those words without knowing what they really mean!

Bikerdude said...

Slogan: Heheh you bet, I should have included Yabba as a word in there :)

Comment: Ohohoho bandbutya stylaagi? :)

Tapan & Mo: Thanks ri. Pls to think of more words for release 2 :)

Vivek said...

yappo yappo !!! sakta super bombat aagide man !!

Mark IV said...

wow.. truly useful...
a horrible time in bangalore without the knowledge of "Goobe"
always wondered what it meant...

btw, whats maadu baekku? with my tamil background, the first time i thought the auto guy was callin me a dumb cow!

Thejesh GN said...

bisketu : hudugi bisket hakbutaalalla guru.

bella : easy one: a balu bella guru. used while playing cricket.

Thejesh GN said...

some more:

1.nimma padada xerox kodi swalpa
3.dove hakbeda
4.ittidiyale maga - you have guts

Bikerdude said...

Thanks Vivek :)

Mark: Maada beku (a is usually clipped off) means "have to do" :)

Thejesh: Boss! Modhalu nim paadada xerox kodi! Thanks for reminding me of all of those words. Nesht time add maadthene

Siddharth Nair said...

Bombat post raa. Fullu intranettudu chitrananna maadidane.

footnotz said...

Here thanks to Vivek! And, I have this huge grin spread all over my face reading it - maneg vapas bandangaite guru!

May be your next endeavour should be to get the slang from the girls' point of view! what say?

Mo said...

I cannot able to think of more words yaa.

There is slang from girl's point of view??

Bikerdude said...

Thanks sidharth mo and footnotz

I only know old lady cusses like Bevarsi, Dharbesi, Dhraabe, Kaage, Guge and Kaththe (not to mention mundedhe which is not polite). Any others pls to be telling for next compilations

comment_raja said...

Hegna, Aane mari, Chandaali, Sule (i know, i know), jagath mindri (courtesy: zygote)

i will write more, after a good bout of meditation.

Bikerdude said...

Ane mari, Kudure mari, 2, 2, 2.

Jaganmindri is also my favourite (though Im reserving all those for a cussword dictionary to be published in 2030 when all such words will be used in normal conversation)

lucifer_layne said...

Bayankara, machchan!!! Good to see that this is still colloquial in B'lore! It's been ages since I called someone a Gubaal or a Badi Magane for that matter!! ;-)

Here in Hyd, I get my (sorry) kicks by yelling "Maa ki kirkiri". ;-)

Bikerdude said...

Lol Lucifer, yes I hear Hyd slang is very colourful indeed. My hyd colleagues have me in splits everytime we get together.

Mark IV said...

aaah... but u must understand the shock of a tamil on the first time in. its bad enough that common vocab there sounds like someone's scolding me!
i survived my half a year in blore with a 'solpa-solpa' for any question that had the keyword 'kannada'. and 'guru, eeredu kings'...(sometimes an even worse hindi-kannada-tamil mix with 'guru rendu kings dho')
i relive my worst moment when i asked this guy for directions from koramangala 4th block to indranagar (a brief stint near TGIF)- 'guru, right maadi, solpa straight, leftu, purstu rightu, straaaaiiiiiiight hogi'.... (add the salsa mix with the hands as he says this)

anyways, like the wierd rj keeps saying in that red half-a-months-salary bus- "enjoy maadi"

comment_raja said...

I had a good laugh over Pimp Rani, Tooth Fielding, and 'Muchkonthira?'

I dont know what tooth fielding is, but it shall be a part of my staple diet from now on.

Eldo Scaria said...

I'm a Banglorean stationed in Sharjah for the past few years, and a friend gave me the link to your site. Good to hear a few old terms.

On the last few visits home though, Bangalore seemed lesser of Bangalore, the lingo has changed...

A cop who caught me for 'wraang parking...' fined me in Hindi. A drunk parking attendant called me a BC and not a SNM (S___ nan maga)

This particular list i got from a hardcore Bengaloorian colleague, a certain Mr. Angadi, i have no idea what his source was.

Cheers and hope you can crack them all. My favourite is 'touching touching..."

This is AWESOME! I'm a Bangalore Kannadiga but grew up learning squeaky clean Kannada at home. Slangs were banned in my house and I never really knew the meaning of many of these expressions until I started working with Telugu, Tamil & Mallu Bangaloreans! You've done a great job, especially because your command over English is equally good. I find it very disappointing and frustrating when people with great local language skills are not able to translate juicy colloquialisms into English very well and the whole meaning, flavour, and significance gets lost. You've just justice to all of these. I'm in UK now and am gonna forward this link to my friends in the US. Again, this is AWESOME and great effort!

awesome job! would like to add a few:

thamma: (lit. younger brother) bro, dude. "yenla thamma, yengaithe maige?"

kadar: awesome, amazing. "alli noDu mama kadar piece voythaa aithe."

praje: citizen. "aa nan maga ond swalpa ailu praje" or "yakla praje, nigraaDtha iddiya?"

soppu: (lit. leaves) weed. "sisya, soppu hodidu bandya mom?"

mom (pronounced as in mām: friend, dude.

ailu: person of questionable sanity

Your lost is very interesting, you have made it very easy for people to find what they need without struggling. As i was looking for information about a certain issue, i realized that gardening could also highly beneficial. This is through Offering of Gardening Services, which can be provided by highly trained experts. Your dictionary may not have much on this, and therefore combining the both of them could be of great use to the readers.
