    Indianisms are certain grammatical errors in English language that are very common in India .
    Let us look at some of the Indianisms:

    1. Me and my friend
    2. Mr. Smith please have little patience.
    3. Mrs. Mary, How are you today?
    4. I am here only.
    5. She did it itself.
    6. He himself did the work.
    7. I will return it back to you.
    8. Please revert back.
    9. I had an operation three years back.
    10. Don�t worry sir, I will satisfy you.
    11. Please be online for a moment while��.
    12. I did not took it.
    13. I did not knew it.
    14. I am loving it.

    18. Sorry, I beg your pardon.
    19. This work is more easier than that.
    20. I have a terrific headache.
    21. Prepone the meeting.
    22. A newly arrived immigrant from India would try to speak "chaste English" with people he would meet, ask their "good name" and how many "issues" they have, and insist that they do not "observe formality', but "have a beer bottle" or two with him. They cannot meet his "better half", because she is having "a head bath", but being "newly married", he is "cent-per-cent" sure that she is "carrying". Since he is not "a busybody" today because he has had his "offs" changed to Sundays by "oiling" his boss, he might offer them a ride in his new car, but will make sure there is a "stepany" in the "dickey", otherwise they might have to "foot" it in case of a "puncture".

    24. Run quickly quickly or you will miss the bus.

    29. I am a veg.

    May be answered with: Yes, I didn�t.
