A friend who speaks Dogri sent me the text:
sr peed maay
which I think contains a typo. But the text was in his native tongue. When I asked about the meaning, I got the meaning for first two words, which are translated as:
sr -> sar (Hindi) -> head (English)
peed -> dard (Hindi) -> pain (English)
But, for the third, the reply was that it's the shot form of a bad word. I ignored this at the time, but curiosity is killing me now, and I want to know what this word maay means.
What resources or methods are there for understanding such a Dogri word that is probably misspelled, a slang expression or a non-standard short form?
I've tried many online dictionaries with no luck.
