Did You Know?

Hindi is so closely related to Urdu, the main language of neighbouring Pakistan, that linguists consider Hindi and Urdu different formal registers of the same language – Hindustani. In fact, until the Partition of India, Hindustani, Hindi and Urdu were synonymous terms.

Despite extensive colloquial similarities, the two registers differ considerably in literary and formal vocabulary. Where Hindi draws heavily on Sanskrit and Prakrit, Urdu draws from Persian and Arabic.
