    Random Fact:
    In Bengali we don't have different words for eat and drink.

    We say:
    I want "to eat" water... Or maybe it's really I want "to drink" food...

    Either way, a separate word doesn't exist :mmm:

    I'd try to attempt but it wouldn't be a correct translation

    Yeah same "Amee chaa/saa khaytam" - "I tea want to eat"

    Chaa or saa... I (speak the informal Bengali) say saa but chaa is the proper version

    It's good to see some sort of similarities within Asian languages, but it's a shame it's not as abundant as European languages.
    Tea in Mandarin is also cha.
    Mandarin and Japanese are quite similar (if you're talking about sounds).

    :nah:

    Lunka? Don't think its a real word but we use it to mean chunk of food?

    Like say there are three mouthfuls of food left we'd say "three more lunkas" or "aro teen loonka"
