AsSalamOAlaikum WaRehmatuAllah WaBarkatuhu

Yeah they are all english words shown with an accent. Basically in bengali we dont have certain sounds for example the alphabet "v", closest we got sounds like a "b" hence DBD!!!! :rollseyes kool huh?!!

Urdu has arabic words in it too I think, and when urdu speakers learn arabic they're like

"HEYY I KNOW THIS WORD, THEY STOLE THis FROM URDU AND PUT IT IN ARABIC"

What was her name?Zulekha :hmm:

Zulekha was our bengali maid and a wonderful woman.The quality i like most was she never speak lie.Once she was telling us about a bengali sweet and she kept on repeating "Khazoor ka ghoor" and i was unable to understand what was that.When she gone,i asked my mother and she told me that it was "Khajoor ka gurr" :hmm:
And the way she called every good smell as "Acha badboo" made me ROFL :giggling:

Things like this go both ways. Doesn't the English word 'bungalow' derive from a Bengali word?

Yup, from 'Bangla' gor (house)- usually the one floor smaller houses are referred to as such.
Where on earth has this thread been hiding?
I had relative who kept going on about 'Central bourne' to find they meant 'St. Albans'....

This is wrong , not all of these words are bangla
for example I pick out some of your faults, some of these words are not Bengali, perhaps you think it is since that you were raised in an English home but there are actual Bengali words for some of these

friend=bondu
paper= kagus
towel= gamsha
