Malayalam Calendar Vocabulary

AKA: Marking Your Calendar, Telling Time, and Some More Superstition

We decided to do some important vocab this week, so here you go! Vocabulary for everything to do with the calendar. We are sure that as a Malayalee, this beautiful Manorama calendar is part of your family, or at the very least, you’ve seen it. It’s got all the information we need as Malayalees (if you don’t have one, what are you doing? Go get one! lol). All the red dates are holidays in Kerala.

വർഷം or കൊല്ലം varsham or kollam Year
ആണ്ട് aandu Year, we tend to use this for dramatic purposes and to mark centuries
നൂറ്റാണ്ട്‌ nuutandu Century, (lit 100 years)
മാസം maasam Month
ആഴ്‌ച azhicha Week
ദിവസം divasam Day
നാൾ nal Day (can be used as dramatic as well)
മിനിഞ്ഞാന്ന് mininjannu Day before yesterday
ഇന്നലെ innale Yesterday
ഇന്ന് innu Today
നാളെ nalle Tomorrow
മറ്റന്നാൾ mattunnal Day after tomorrow

പകൽ pakal Daytime
രാവിലെ raavile Morning
ഉച്ചം or ഉച്ച uCHum or uCHa Noon
വൈകുന്നേരം vaikunneeram (why-kunae-rem) Evening (lit trans: getting late time)
രാത്രി raathri Night/night time
അര്‍ദ്ധരാത്രി (dramatic ver) or പാതിരാത്രി ardharaathri or paathiraathri Midnight (both prefix words means half, അര്‍ദ്ധ is sanskrit org)
സമയം samayam Time 
നേരം neeram Time
അസമയം asmayam Bad time/timing (like 2am or bad luck lol)
കാലം kaalam Time or season, but mostly used as season
മണി mani Bell (equivalent of O’clock)
മണിക്കൂര്‍ manikkuur hour or മണിക്കൂറുകൾ manikkuurukal hours
നിമിഷം nimisham moment or a minute/second

On daily basis we do follow the Gregorian Calendar so the months are all the same and pronounced the same as well, so all you need to know is how to spell correctly yey! It’s common to say “month of ___” so Malayalees often say “ ____ മാസം”

ജനുവരി januvari
ഫെബ്രുവരി februvari
മാർച്ച് march ( how cool is this?)
ഏപ്രിൽ epril
മെയ് mey
ജൂൺ juun
ജൂലൈ juulai
ഓഗസ്റ്റ് augast
സെപ്റ്റംബർ septambar
ഒക്ടോബർ oktoobar
നവംബർ navambar
ഡിസംബർ disambar

I like to think of these as the English months but in a Malayalee accent! Because even if you don’t pronounce it like this, and instead pronounce it like a native English speaker, it would be correct. It might sound a little out of place but it’s correct. BUT don’t change the spellings! - Mrin

Days of the week: Are named after planets, plus the sun and the moon :) So it can be written and said as planet+week(ആഴ്‌ച) or just planet

Sun: ഞായറാഴ്‌ച nyarzhacha or നായർ nyayar
Moon: തിങ്കളാഴ്‌ച thinkalazhcha or തിങ്ൾ thinkal
Mars: ചൊവ്വാഴ്‌ച chovvazhcha or ചൊവ്വ chovva
Mercury: ബുധനാഴ്‌ച budhanazcha or ബുധൻ budhan
Jupiter: വ്യാഴാഴ്‌ച vyazhacha or വ്യാഴം vyazham
Venus: വെള്ളിയാഴ്‌ച velliyazhcha or വെള്ളി veli
Saturn: ശനിയാഴ്‌ച shanizhacha or ശനി shani 

(If you speak an Indo-Aryan language, these may seem familiar to you!)

Now to tell time, there is no am or pm, so instead, Malayalees use the words morning, evening etc along with the actual time especially when making plans.
5am you say രാവിലെ അഞ്ചുമാണി raavile anchumani
5pm then it’s വൈകുന്നേരം അഞ്ചുമാണി vaikuneeram anchumani
9pm then it’s രാത്രി ഒന്പതുമണി raathri onpathumani

Okay, so what about 5:10? Just like in English its അഞ്ചുപത്ത് anchupatth. However we don’t really make plans at such weird times, right? It’s either 15, 30, 45. We don’t say those numbers though, and instead use fractions; quarters to be precise.
¼ കാൽ kaal
½ അര ara
¾  മുക്കാൽ mukkaal (lit. 3 quarter)
So when you read the time or tell someone when to meet up
5:15 is അഞ്ചേകാൽ anchakaal
5:30 is അഞ്ചര anchara
5:45 is അഞ്ചേമുക്കാൽ ancheemukkaal

Pointers: അ is often added to beginning of words to say not/without like “un” in english, for example actress Asin (malayalee) was named in that similar form (it’s better not to question Malayalee naming sense, its esp strong with Christians, but I can say say that since I am one) Also, If you haven’t picked up on it by now, we Malayalees are also dramatic group of people as well as sarcastic, I believe it comes from us loving to tell stories (don’t quote me on that tho :p) - Taniya 

@its-chras-not-cas it was a good book 🤓📖

anonymous asked:

Team Mosk! (But I have to tell you, the margin is preeeeeeetty close....)

Team Mosk is officially winning at the moment! Followed by Team Mosk/Eran, and then Team ‘Everyone Getting Along’ and then Team Eran. Lol.

Eran is monumentally not winning that race (but he’s not supposed to be, at this point in the game. *pets him*)

With special dedication for @blacksmiley-c because I don’t know anyone who could love Gabe more than she does 🍩

You know, I find it really amazing how modern children’s cartoons can get so dark. 

To prove my point, let’s compare a light scene to a dark scene from some modern cartoon children’s shows:

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil:



Steven Universe:



Adventure Time:



Over The Garden Wall:



My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:



The Amazing World Of Gumball:



Regular Show:



Gravity Falls:



See how dark some modern children’s cartoon shows can get? 

It’s just so fucking amazing.

A visualization of chaos: 41 triple pendulums with very slightly different initial conditions 

It is a good example of a chaotic system. In a chaotic system, small deviations such as a rounding error can cause such large changes that it seems impossible to predict the behavior of the chaotic system

There are actually 41 pendulums from the very beginning, although it looks like there is only one. Did you expect that?
