    Re: Hindi vs Urdu

    Difference between Hindi and Urdu
    - Few words (hindi takes some words from Sanskirit)
    - Script (Major Difference)
    - Urdu sounds more polite

    Urdu sounds better than hindi where they have differences. And Urdu script is also better.

    i disagree. i am told that when you read a word in devanagari script you know exactly what it sounds like. (i can't read devanagari) also the arabic script is not all that well suited to an indo-european language.

    no its not...
    i think spoken urdu and hindi are one and the same thing..just with a difference of few words..
    the muslims used to write in farsi or maybe arabic script and hindus write it in the devangiri script..thats the basic difference...so thats y urdu is in pak and hindi in india..

    Re: Hindi vs Urdu

    you probably don't realise it because you've heard urdu all your lives. i am teaching myself and the only urdu i generally get to hear is in music. so if i look at an urdu word, i can't tell for sure how to say it - for example, what the vowels are. i have some audio learning cassettes and they have helped, but often when i encounter a new word, i have no idea what it should sound like. i've heard that devanegari is very specific, that you know exactly how to say the word by looking at it.
    i agree wholeheartedly - urdu is a beautiful language. (which is why i'm trying to learn it). i have also read that since partition urdu and hindi are gradually becoming different.
    i have another question - the specific version of the arabic script that is used in pakistan - where did it originate? is it used in any other country besides pakistan and india? the farsi i've seen doesn't look like that (but i've only seen it on the web). i think it looks cool, but i have a hard time reading it sometimes, compared to the script used by bbc urdu for example.
    hmmm. so it's not true that urdu is not native to the land that is now pakistan? the main languages would've been punjabi, pashto, baluchi sindhi...and urdu? what part of pakistan was urdu native to?
    well, i guess that's enough questions! thanks.

    Re: Hindi vs Urdu

    The history of Urdu/Hindi

    Urdu/Hindi belong to the Indo-Iranian branch of the Indo-European family of languages.

    'Urdu' comes from the Persian zaban-e-urdu-e-mu'alla (language of the imperial court), a gloss which gives important clues to its history. Originally it was one of the languages spoken in the Hindi region of India. During the sixteenth century, however, large areas of India fell under the rule of Muslims whose language and culture were predominantly Persian. While the structure of Urdu remained essentially Indian, the vocabulary was greatly influenced by Persian. Urdu spread all over India through administrative structures, army encampments and bazaars.

    The linguistic status of Urdu/Hindi has been the subject of fierce debate. Some argue that they be treated as the same language; others that they should be treated separately on the grounds of differences in vocabulary and word order.

    Re: Hindi vs Urdu

    well iguess i shud correct my mistake...else i'll hav made a 'historical' error...
    :X
    i shud'v said, devnagiri script was "officially recognized" as d first lang of india aftr independence....

    n i s'pose bro snakelegs is havin probs becoz urdu doesnt use overt markers-the e'raab-which u see in hindi...i think dats y a lot f ppl find it easier to read hindi...

    but if u'r familiar with the language, its pretty easy to start reading going by ur instinct for vocab...me, im an urdu speaker but i started on my literacy skills at 11yrs, n immediately aftr dat i had "ibnul waqt" at skool...a political novel on the early freedom movement in india... but i got thru...n alhamdulillah im a great fan of iqbal today...

    diff ?
    well some words differ... but generally its almost the same when it comes to speaking.
    i agree with this one...i mean in hyderabad we speak both hindi and urdu.. its a complete mixx....its neva only urdu or hindi....if one starts speaking hindi only..with out any urdu then its like very diff to understand! and the sames with urdu! so when urdu and hindi mix up... its easier to understand! so we speak both urdu hindi!
