Greetings!

Any ideas what we'd call a stye in Hindi/Urdu and Punjabi? In Punjabi, I know the words I know are ਗੁਆਂਢਣੀ or ਗੁਹਾਰਨੀ, but I've just discovered that some people say ਆਨਣੀ.

Thoughts?

    In (my) Punjabi: guuNtalikkii

    Greetings PG SaaHib! In your sojourn in Lucknow did you by chance hear this: کنجيا कंजिया kanjiyaa for stye?

    We use this a lot!

    Of course گہانجني गुहांजनी guhaaNjnii is also used.

    Can't say that I have, Faylasoof Sahib. Sounds like a great word. Is it from Awadhi?
    Yes, very nice word! I guess none had a kanjiyaa talk about ! :D

    Is it Awadhi? You could be right! Perhaps that is where we originally got it from but it is firmly a part of Urdu vocabulary. Well, Eastern Urdu at least. May be not used at all / not common in western regions where guhaaNjnii prevails.
