The most important difference is that Urdu has heavy Persian words,while Hindi gets a lot from Sanskrit.An between these two extreme versions is another one called the "Hindustani dialect".

Both are great languages but are sadly spoilt by their speakers:(. Being from Pakistan Urdu was not that tough but it takes to to be able to read its script:22:.

As for those who think Hindi isnīt a polite language, please read the conversation from the following thread......

http://www.pakpassion.net/ppforum/showthread.php?t=70536

To fulfill the purpose of this thread, please check this thread to discover probably the biggest difference between the two languages......


Online dictionaries suggest otherwise then why is it pronounced that way? An example possibly is the word "Phool" ('flower') from Urdu which is called "Fool" in Hindi. "Phir" becomes "Fir" and so on.

Just thought that it was an interesting thing to ask about:13:.........

P.S.: Another interesting thing is the usage of "Z" and "J" absolutely contrary to Urdu. For example, "Darwaaza" ('door') as "Darwaaja" in Hindi, and "Jadojehadd" ('struggle'?) as "Zadozehadd".

no if you speak hindi with sanskrit words , it does not sound indecent at all .


but Urdu is just more sophisticated and a beautiful , poetic language . many hindus and sikhs have made great contribution to it . initially , they started off as the same language , of course , but politics led to Urdu becoming more of a part of identity of the Muslims of both India and Pakistan .

anyhow , is it just me or sanskrit sounds a lot like farsi when spoken ? :kami

Offtopic again: Well that's interesting!There are quite a few hindi/sansikrit words which Urdu speaking people find difficult to understand and as you've mentioned same is the case with Hindi speakers with difficult urdu words. Are Hindi and Sansikrit written the same way and can average Hindi speaker read Urdu?

Should discuss this in language forum. :adnan

Hindi and Sanskrit are written using the same script. Average Hindi speaker can not read Urdu because of different script..but can understand it unless some difficult words are being used.. that is why for a hindi speaker urdu is the easiest language to learn..all you have to do it to learn the script (which is the easy part) and then build on your vocabulary..no need to learn any grammar

I think there's a lot of differences in Urdu and Hindi, like there is in different Arabic languages.

As said before Urdu uses a lot more Persian and Arabic words and sentence builders than Hindi does. Hindi has a lot more Sanskritised dialect. The common man Urdu and Hindi seems very alike an they really are, but if you go to the depth of both hindi and urdu one understands how different they can be.

One example could be like, the term politics. While the Urdu speaking says Siyasat the Hindi speaking populations tend to go over to the Sanskrit and say Rajniti

Another example could be the honorary titles in the different countries.


Wazee-r-Azam - Pardhan Mantri
Wazeer-e-Dakhla - Girih Mantri
Sadr - Rashtra Pati
Nayab-Sadr - Up-Rashtrapati
Wazeer-e-Ala - Mukhya-Mantri


[Fact Box]
Hindi is written from left to right in the Devanagari script.
Urdu is written from right to left in a modified Persian-Arabic script called Nasta’liq.
Hindi uses vocabulary from Sanskrit.
Urdu uses vocabulary from Persian and Arabic.

Difference? There is one major difference. How about one is a real language, while the other was invented in 1881.

Urdu has been around since roughly the 15th century. There are centuries of history behind Urdu both in terms of literature and poetry. Hindi is a bastardization of Urdu concocted in 1881 by radical North Indian Hindu extremists who didn't like why Urdu was declared an official language of British India. Remember, following the failed 1857 War of Independence, the British were of the opinion that the "uprising" was mainly a Muslim led event. Several recommendations were made following the Hunter Commission was included banning Persian.

The banning of Persian gave rise to Urdu (also known as Hindustani). This language was always written using Nastaliq (Persian-Urdu) script. The term "Hindi" was also sometimes used to define this language in the Delhi region during the time of Mirza Ghalib. Essentially Hindustani or Hindi all meant > URDU before 1880.

The reason why "modern hindi" came into being (I use citations because I don't regard it as a real language) is because Urdu's Nastaliq script was seen as a reminder of previous Muslim rule of the subcontinent, which radical right wing North Indian Hindus resented. I'm specifically saying North Indian Hindus, not Hindus from Bengal or South India or anywhere else so calm down.

By 1880, they came up with "modern hindi"...essentially Urdu's traditional Nastaliq script was replaced with Devangari script and many Persian based words were replaced with Sanskrit based words. That's how hindi was born.

Proof? Go ahead and try and find a single piece of hindi literature written before 1850....you can't find any. Why? Because that language didn't exist. And this isn't me saying this....ask any non-Hindi speaker in India. Infact they make this claim more stronger than some silly Pakistanis who claim it's the same language. It's not...one is real, the other is fake. Ask people from Tamil Nadu, Kerela and Andra...they all despise Hindi because they don't regard it as a real language.

Hindi is basically Sanskritized Urdu born out of religious hatred.

There's your history lesson for the day.

PS: hindi just sounds weird. (ie. jindabad? sabjee? padosi? ladke?) df?

Wrong, and wrong again.

The grammar of Urdu is based on Sanskrit. Urdu is a descendant language of Sanskrit (like Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi etc.) with lots of Persian and Arabic loan words and an imported script.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urdu

[Urdu is a persianized and standardised register of the Hindustani language... Urdu, like Hindi, is a form of Hindustani.[17] It evolved from the medieval (6th to 13th century) Apabhraṃśa register of the preceding Shauraseni language, a Middle Indo-Aryan language that is also the ancestor of other modern Indo-Aryan languages, including the Punjabi dialects. ]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindustani_language

[It is an Indo-Aryan language, deriving its base primarily from the Khariboli dialect of Delhi, and incorporates a large amount of vocabulary from Sanskrit, Persian, Arabic and Chagatai.]

The script that Urdu is currently written in is not of Indo-European origin.

Both Urdu and Hindi have the same language origins. ... The main difference between the two languages is their association. Hindi is a language used and spoken by Hindi people, the native and leading population of India. On the other hand, Urdu is associated with Pakistan and Muslims.

The two languages have very different scripts. Urdu uses the Nastaliq script, which is written from left to right While on the other hand Hindi uses the Devanagari script.



A lot of words are different. Grammar-wise, they are pretty much the same. As a result, many Urdu words are commonly used replaceably (is it an actual word? :/) in Hindi. You can find many examples of this in Bollywood songs. Most speakers of both languages can understand the other without much difficulty.

"Pure" Hindi leans towards Sanskrit whereas "pure" Urdu tends towards Persian.

Grammer of both Urdu and Hindi is derived from Devnagri.
Replace the nouns in Urdu with Arabic/Persian while the same could be replaced by Hindi/Sanskrit/etc in Hindi.

for example replace pani aka water with jal in Hindi

I think Urdu has naturally evolved, while Hindi is an artificially created language, which is being supported by Hindu nationalists, who want to differentiate themselves some how.

I think this Hindu nationalist mentality would lead to sub-nationalism, that would divide India, and may give rise to internal conflict within India.

I think in its extreme form, it would be Hindu facism, that would eventually destroy India.

Though, I hope India reforms itself, and does not fall to Hindu fascist nationalism.
