Re: What is your mother tongue?

I'm surprised that there's no one who speaks Russian as their mother tongue. I thought there are many Russian posters on this board. By the way, I need far more samples for my paper, which requires at least 500 samples.

If you have any problem with me, why don't you say so straight out?

Konkani..south indian language. Doesn't have its own script though. Konkani is written in Kannada script. Feels like an achievement though that it is one of the 22 official languages of India even though our ancestors were almost wiped out by first the Portuguese and then by Tipu Sultan.
