This is the first in a regular series of weekly posts containing bite-sized chunks of Bengali vocabulary I’d like to learn and revise.
The first ‘5 Bengali words’ will be on creative jobs.
Actor – আভিনেতা/আভিনত্র ী (ōbhineta – m/ōbhintri – f)
Artist – শিল্পী (silpi)
Poet – কবি (kōbi)
Singer – গায়ক (gayōk)
Writer – লেখক/লেখিকা (lekhōk – m/lekhika)
Apologies if you saw what was meant to be the draft version of this post. That, evidently, is what I get for trying to save a draft post, step off the train in the rain and not checking whether I was pressing the Draft or the Publish button on my iPhone’s WordPress app.
