modifier at the end of any English word to Kannadize it.

Usage

Venk@: Appa, what is the word for bus in Kannada.
Appa: Lo Beppa ashtu gothillvaa? 'bussu' kano!
( Appa: Hey Knucklehead, Don't you know that much? 'Bus' is 'bassu' in Kannada man!)

Actually this is the case with Southern Karnataka. In Northern Karnataka this 'u' becomes 'a' ( like the 'a' in 'ah'). It goes like 'pumpa, motra, towna, etc.
