I  am looking for  some basic conversational urdu words (phonetically-written please).  We work with a lovely 15yearold autistic lad who doesn't say much, but what he does speak is in urdu, his family's language.  Thanks!

You are clever Woof. I did go on line but had nothing as good. Thanks.

tea keye =OK.   tom = you.  bola = speak.  malum = understand.  sahib = sir.  memsahib = her.  kishwastee = why?  kidder = where?  mucking = butter.  cheeny = sugar.  bibby = girl.  kidder jigerhigh = where are you going?  boat = very.  crab = bad. 

These are 'barrack-room' urdu - picked up during 39.45 war.  Good luck.
