Conjunction[edit]

ಮತ್ತು (mattu)

  1. and
    ನನ್ನನ್ನು ನೋದಿದರೆ ಅವನು ಆನಂದಿಸುವನು ಮತ್ತು ಅವಳು ಆಶ್ಚರ್ಯ ಪಡುವಳು.
    nannannu nōdidare avanu ānaṃdisuvanu mattu avaḷu āścarya paḍuvaḷu.

Usage notes[edit]

"ಮತ್ತು" can connect sentences and clauses and all words. However, when two verbs share a subject, a participial construction is more common. For example, "he sees me and rejoices" would be translated as "having seen me, he rejoices" ("ನನ್ನನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ ಆನಂದಿಸುತ್ತಾನೆ").
