An ‘easy guide’ to learn some Punjabi words has people who understand the language in splits on social media. The list contains a set of English words and numbers, which when pronounced right are translations in Punjabi.

Twitter user Jaspreet Bindra tweeted the list and said,”For those who understand #Punjabi, this is priceless!”

Like 10 pronounced as ‘Dus’ in Punjabi translates to ‘Tell Me’ in English, and 22 is pronounced as ‘Bayi’ which translates to  brother in English.

While most were easy to understand, some were confused how 9 meant daughter-in-law, so the author explained in another tweet.

Many soon added other numbers that described a Punjabi word. Others said they “couldn’t stop laughing” seeing the “accuracy” of the words.
