Alone or with family?

Conversation: Ravi enquires whether Vivek has come to Bangalore alone or with his family.

 

Ravi: Have you come alone or with family?

Neevu obre bandideera athava nimma kutumba samethva bandideera?

  

Neevu (you) obre (alone) bandideera (have come) athava (or) nimma (your) kutumba (family) samethva (with) bandideera (have come)?

 


Vivek: 2 ways to answer


1) I have come alone. My family has not yet come. They will come afterwards.

Naanu obne bandideeni, nanna kutumba innu bandilla, avaru aamele barthare.

  

Naanu (I) obne (alone) bandideeni (have come), nanna (my) kutumba (family) innu (yet) bandilla [bandu (come) + illa (no)], avaru (they) aamele (later) barthare (will come).

 


2) I have come with my family.

Naanu, nanna kutumba jothe bandideni.

  

Naanu (I), nanna (my) kutumba (family) jothe (with) bandideni (have come).
