Friends, let us move a step ahead towards sentence formation today. We will talk about verbs.
In English some verbs are  :- to go; to come; to speak; to sit; to eat etc.
In Marathi some verbs are येणे(yeNe), जाणे(jANe), बोलणे (bolaNe), बसणे(basaNe), खाणे(khaaNe) etc.

While using verb in English sentence we strip "to" out of it. "To  come" is used in sentence as "I come" etc. 
Same way in Marathi ending णे (Ne) is stripped in sentence.

Like in English, Just saying the verb is asking someone to do that action.
When you say "Come !" you are asking someone to come. Same way in Marathi saying "ये(ye)" is asking someone to come.

So by knowing the verbs you can easily request someone.

  1. Mr.Lele, you are explaining the language very well. I have been in Mumbai and Pune for few years but since Hindi and English was sufficient did not pay much attention but could understand simple Marathi to some extant. Means can go to bazar and get things and like that. Now I just want to brush up my Marathi and found your way of teaching to be quite good. In this lesson I got a doubt. Whether the last consonent is like in Sanskrit or Hindi. कर,उठ, झोप etc are kara, uDha, Jhopa etc or like in Hindi? In full sentence it may not matter. Say like 'kai karto tumi ' or 'zhopla kai'. Excuse me if these sentences are wrong. Sentences like these I got by listening. There could be grammatical mistakes.
    Thanks,

    1. Hi V.K.Guptan, Thanks a lot for appreciation and all the best for Marathi learning. I appreciate your spirit of learning. It is never too late !!

      Last consonant of verb ( or rather any word ) is pronounced completely. So in कर,उठ,झोप last letter र,ठ,प are spoken completely. If it is to be spoken half, then in Devanagari it is written as कर्‌, ऊठ्‌, झोप्‌

      I think this is what you wanted to know.
