One of the charms and beauty of our language is ‘HA‘ as different from ‘A/AA‘.
It is Hethe(y) and not Athe(y)/Ethe(y).
Like, the correct way to say is :- Hatti [village], Haalu [milk], HaLLa [river] etc. But I am disgusted and disappointed to hear the above words being mentioned as ‘Atti, aalu,aLLa‘.
In one of the latest releases of the ballad Beradha Bellie – ‘Kaakay haadhara– is sung as Kakkay aadhara‘. Disappointing.
By the way, in many words, the meaning completely changes when you substitute HA with AA. For example, Haalu – milk becomes ANGER[Irritation] when AALU is used.
Harachu – bless, Arachu – Find, Haday – lie down, aday – close
Ignorance may be a bliss but not an EXCUSE.
