I planned to blog the Kannada lessons, as my kid learn in their class. I started with this post of mine, but lost track because of other work commitments. Now as they revise their units, in the year end, I thought lets continue the series.
And today it’s about numbers. 0 to 10. For Hindi speakers, zero in Kannada, sounds similar. शुन्य in Hindi, and Sonne(ಸೊನ್ನೆ) in Kannada. The number is written exactly same as in English or Hindi. 0.
Rest of the numbers are written as below:
And they are pronounced as below, as read by my daughter.
For higher numbers see the table and pattern with single digit number. One can relate that these numbers follow a pattern that is similar to Hindi numbers.
The pattern follows as below:
2(೨) → eraḍu : 20 → ippattu
3(೩) → mūru : 30 → Movathu
4(೪) → Nalku : 40 → Nalavatthu
5(೫) → aidu : 50 → Aivattu
6(೬) → aaru : 60 → Aruvattu
7(೭) → elu : 70 → Eppattu
8(೮) → enṭu : 80 → Embattu
9(೯) → ombattu : 90 → tombattu
100 → nooru
