December 21, 2021

Do you want to learn the Punjabi language? With this guide, you can easily learn to say YES and NO in Punjabi.

Punjabi is the official language of the Indian state of Punjab. It is a highly spoken language in India and features most widely in Delhi and Haryana. Sikh, Hindu, Muslim, and all other religions in Punjab love to speak Punjabi as it is their mother tongue. So, if you are visiting Punjab, you must know the basic words and phrases. The Ling App is here to help you.

 

Different Ways To Say Yes And No In Punjabi 

How To Say "Yes" In Punjabi?

Being respectful is, of course, an excellent habit to practice. So, whenever someone offers to help you with something (like preparing a cup of coffee), you can respond with "ਹਾਂ ਧੰਨਵਾਦ." In English, this phrase translates to "yes, thank you." These two Punjabi words will go a long way toward helping you make a positive impression on the locals.

The Punjabi translation of the word Yes, of course, is "Avaśa hāṁ." It is the most common word used by Punjabis to respond to something positive.

Moreover, if someone asks you "would you like to go for Valentine's dance with me?" you can answer by just saying, "Yes, I will" "Hāṁ mai karāṅgā." Read the following ways to say yes in the Punjabi language.
