     OP - October 16, 2010, 01:52 AM

    Yeh jagah hai un logon ke liye jo Urdu seekhna chahtain hain, aur voh jo dosron ko sikhana chahtey hain. Yahaan par aap apne sawaal puchhain Urdu ke baray mein, aur practice bhi karein. Aur agar aap ko Urdu aati hai, to yahaan likhain doosro ko sikhhanay ke liye.

    This thread is for those who want to learn Urdu and those who want to help people learn it. Post your questions regarding the Urdu language, or practice the language here. Also, if you know Urdu, post things to help out others who want to learn it, like phrases, vocabulary, lessons, etc.

    Main shuruath karti hoon, numberon ke saath:
    I'll start, with numerals:

    1 = ek
    2 = do (soft "d" like in "the")
    3 = theen
    4 = chaar
    5 = paanch
    6 = chhay
    7 = saath
    8 = aatth (hard "t" at the end)
    9 = naw
    10 = dus
    11 = ghyara
    12 = bara
    13 = thera
    14 = chawda
    15 = pandra
    16 = sola
    17 = sathra
    18 = atthara
    19 = oonnees
    20 = bees

    100 = saw
    200 = do saw
    500 = paanch saw
    ...

    1000 = hazar
    2000 = do hazaar
    ...

    yep, it was a trick question Smiley

    89 = navasi
    79 = unyasi

    these are the typically the most confusing ones even to those who've used the general pattern their whole life.

    No, it only has a few alterations to the arabic and I think is completely akin to the persian

    Urdu and Persian, both languages are written in modified Arabic script. I only know Urdu and Hindi. Hindi is written in Devanagari script. Hindi and Urdu are identical in normal everyday conversation. The grammar is essentially the same. The verbs and conjugations are identical in both languages.

    Urdu and Hindi differ at literary level, but not because of the grammar. In literature, Urdu uses many Arabic words and Hindi uses many Sanskrit words. But both languages have many Persian and Turkish words in common. For example "darwaza" which means door is Hindi and Urdu. There are countless of such words in both languages.

    When I am talking to a Pakistani, I am speaking Hindi and she is speaking Urdu but we both are speaking the same language. Aap kaa naam kya hai? Is it Hindi or Urdu, or both? Aap kahaan ja rahi hain? Mein kal amrika jaaoongi. I say it's Hindi you say it's Urdu, somebody shouts, "why don't you duke it out" Cheesy

    Urdu has many more letters than Arabic and Persian. Urdu and Hindi have same letters - even though both languages use the different scripts. There are sounds which exist only in Indian languages. Persian and Arabic have only dental t's and d's. Urdu has dental as well as retroflex t's and d's. Also Urdu has aspirant sounds like th, dh (dental as well retroflex), kh, bh, gh, chh etc. Hindi and Urdu have these sounds in common. We can say that Urdu and Hindi share the same alphabet, even though they use different scripts in different order.

    hi guys, recently I was looking at Urdu and was trying to get the alphabet (I already read Arabic, so this is a big advantage).
    However, I got a but confused with the multitude of d's and t's.  Huh?

    I listened to some video on Utube, but I could barely hear the difference between d, retroflex d, t and retroflex t.( I mean the letters with a miniature "TA" on them, like in the word "Urdu board" written in urdu.)  Is this distinction really made when (casually) talking?
  • Re: Urdu lessons
     Reply #26 - January 20, 2011, 06:18 PM

    The thing is Urdu have two distinct letters. English has only one "D", Arabic has only one too.. Urdu has both. By the way, you can use the same sound in English using the letters "th" combined.

    You know it can't be true what you say about Arabic, muddy. Their whole Aliphabet is made of consonants, so Arabic has at least six ds in my estimate. Anyway, Urdu is too easy, try learning Finnish instead. Here's a clip of a related language:
