Hindi is listed as the 4th most widely spoken language in the world. Of the 22 official languages and over 1,000 dialects of India, Hindi along with English is promoted by the government and viewed by over half the population as a "link-language." Hindi is an Indo-European language spoken in India, Nepal, and by minorities in Fiji, United Arab Emirates, Trinidad, Suriname, South Africa, UK, USA and Australia. Hindi is written in the Devanagari script, shared with Nepali, Marathi and a number of other Indian languages. Devanagari is a form of alphabet called an abugida, as each consonant has an inherent vowel (a), that can be changed with the different vowel signs. Most consonants can be joined to one or two other consonants so that the inherent vowel is suppressed. The resulting form is called a ligature. Devanagari is written from left to right. Devanagari has no case distinction, i.e. no upper case letters. This dictionary contains 12,500 terms in English and Hindi with their transliteration equivalent in the Roman Alphabet. Terms are also identified according to their part of speech. We also publish a dictionary with definitions in Hindi (16,000 terms) and an unabridged English / Hindi Dictionary with 136,000 terms.
