50 hard Hindi words that we don’t use in daily conversation

While a number of Indians are giving enough time to learn English, they are moving away from languages like Hindi. If you don’t agree, we present you a list of 50 hard Hindi words.

September 19, 2021: Hindi, or more precisely modern standard Hindi, is an Indo-Aryan language spoken chiefly in North India. The language of Hindi is held to be a standardised and Sanskritised register of the Hindustani language, which itself is based primarily on the Khariboli dialect of Delhi and neighbouring areas of Northern India. The Indian Government has two official languages – Hindi, written in the Devanagari script, is one along with the English language. The former is the official language in 9 states and 3 Union Territories and an additional official language in 3 other states. Hindi is also one of the 22 scheduled languages of the Republic of India. On one hand where Indians are giving enough time in learning a foreign language, they are getting away from Hindi. If you don’t agree, let’s take a look at the hard Hindi words which most of us are not aware of or don’t use in the daily conversation.

Hard Hindi words

Many other dialects or variations of the language Hindi, are recognised officially as “Hindi” outside India.

However, these do not refer to the Standard Hindi language described here and instead descend from other dialects, such as Awadhi and Bhojpuri.

Such languages include Fiji Hindi, which is official in Fiji and Caribbean Hindustani, which is spoken in Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, and Suriname. Apart from the script and formal vocabulary, standard Hindi is mutually intelligible with standard Urdu, another recognised register of Hindustani as both share a common colloquial base.

Fourth most-spoken first language in the world

Keeping an eye on the demographics of the world, with India’s population being the second largest, as a linguistic variety, Hindi is the fourth most-spoken first language in the world, after Mandarin, Spanish and English. Hindi alongside Urdu as Hindustani is the third most-spoken language in the world, after Mandarin and English.

When it comes to pronouncing Hindi words for the non-Hindi speaking race, it can get a big feat.
