    How is “sweet” used in Pashto? in English this is an idiomatic expression, that I would be surprised if it came across the same in Pashto!

    Hi Tylere
    We use ‘sweet’ as ‘The mangoes are sweet’, ‘This is a sweet baby’ and ‘Pashto is a sweet language.’
    In Pashto, we use the word like this:
    دا امونه خواږۀ دي
    دا يو خوږ ماشوم دى
    پښتو خوږه ژبه ده
    We use it in the meaning of delicious, some times for pretty and some times for good-looking.
    Sweets are khwagah in Pashto. Like:
    خواږه مه خوره
    Dont eat sweets.
