  7. Hi,

    Is there any rule when to use (sa) and (ya) in spoken marathi?

    Ex: ओरडतोस -ending with sa
    नाचतोय- ending with ya.

    Thank You,

    1. ओरडतोस is simple present tense. "You shout"
      नाचतोय is short form of नाचतो आहे. It is present continuous tense. "He is dancing".

      Let me know if it answers your query.
      By the way are you "ARUN KAGATIKAR" ?
