'Bollocks Ji' may be humorous, but seems rather out of place here... Wathiik (talk) 12:41, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Proposed move to Wiktionary[edit]

Will it still show up in a Wikipedia search? Fowler&fowler«Talk» 18:15, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Origin[edit]

  • I have seen where Hindi -ji was rendered in Sanskrit as -opadhyay (i.e. -a-upādhyāya with sandhi). "upādhyāya" is Sanskrit for "teacher". Anthony Appleyard (talk) 06:38, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

-- Never seen this or heard about this... perhaps this is better substantiated with an example. Smarter1 (talk) 05:10, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Definitely deserves an article[edit]

I have expanded it a bit. If sir, mister, san deserve wikipedia entries, Ji does too. It's a pretty important cultural artifact of North India and Pakistan. --Hunnjazal (talk) 06:02, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
