Hi Muhammad Afghan and Johann,

Thank you for your question Muhammad. Hindi and Urdu certainly have a unique relationship.

You are partially right Johann - a lot of the colloquial Hindi spoken in northern parts of India, around Delhi, Punjab shares much of its vocabulary with Urdu. This is because people speak a mix of Hindi and Urdu, sometimes called "Hindustani" speech. This is partly due to the influence of Urdu poetry on Hindi movies (Bollywood) which in turn affects colloquial speech a lot.

However, in other regions of Hindi, the vocabulary uses more words of Sanskritic origin that are not present in Urdu. The greater difference is in formal or advanced Hindi, which is very different from formal or advanced Urdu. Urdu tends toward Persian and Arabic vocabulary, whereas Hindi uses vocabulary mostly of Sanskritic origin. The basic structure and grammar are certainly common, but the scripts and the higher vocabulary are not.

I hope that answers your questions. A lot of people have different opinions on this topic, on the origin and history of the languages, that you could explore more if you are interested,

Hello zaidi130,

as far as I can see, the biggest difference lies in writing, in India (and some other countries where Hindi is spoken) people rely on Devanagari (from Sanskrit), Urdu uses Arabic script and is written from right to left. Apart from this, both languages share about 95 % of their vocabulary. So, you could say that both Hindi and Urdu are the same language or, to be more precise: they are VARIETIES of the same language.

Kind regards


Muhammad Afghan

Hello zaidi1300,

Unfortunately I have never been to Pakistan so I cannot provide much information on that. Hope you find some useful links online.
