    Hey, Dilshan..every word of yours just echoes mine.. haha.. me too writing a book and every now and then (even in my dreams, so that I always have a book torch, pen and notebook beneath my pillow!!) these lovely ideas keep popping up, as if to say “Uma, you can do better!” and just to see my book the way I want it to be, I take my own sweet time working on the touches…

    So, put all those inspirations into it and give us that dream book!
    All the best!

    thank you!
    and, what about the slang?

    • Dilshan Jayasinha February 1, 2016 at 23:09 #

      Thank Ivan. Do you mean “slang” as in informal spoken words or “slang” as in not-so-polite ‘bad’ words?

    Wonderful! How many verbs are in there? You provide audio for all these, that’s crazy! (Pissu!) And great :D

    Only thing I don’t understand in the example is “I/we shall wash”. I thought hodannam was only to be used with mame, and hodammu was only to be used with api. But here you are combining the two?

    PS: Consider selling beta book access in the future. This is often done in the programming world. See for example https://pragprog.com – Successive versions are released and your students can give feedback / correct mistakes (I’m sure you are not flawless ;)). Win/win for everyone.

    • Dilshan Jayasinha February 1, 2016 at 23:17 #

      Haha, yes, I plan to do the audio. I’m trying to trim down the verbs to around 350. It could end up being more or much less. I’ll be doing the final list tomorrow.

      Glad you asked that question. No, hodhannam can be said with “mama” or “api”. Remember, it means “I/we shall wash”. Hodhamu means “Let us wash” or “Let’s wash” and can be used only with “api”. Is that clear for you now?

      Thanks for the link. I had never heard about beta book access before. Shall certainly check it out.

      PS: What do you mean I’m not flawless? I’m the epitome of “Perfection” :)

    I’m going to Sri Lanka to visit in April and can’t WAIT for your book. I’m learning SO much from your videos already! Thanks so much for helping out the language-disabled American! :)

    • Dilshan Jayasinha February 9, 2016 at 00:20 #

      Dear “language-disable” American, I think you’re being too hard on yourself. Glad you’re learning from me. Take it easy. Sincerely, ‘Language-enthusiast Sri Lankan”
