Any Sindhi speakers here? Been doing a bit of reading as of late into the Siraiki (Multani) or Southwestern Punjabi language and have been finding more and more similarities between the two languages. I've also been exploring the sufi music of sindh and drawing comparisons to the similar Punjabi material.
I'd be very interested in picking up some learning materials for Sindhi (And Siraiki/Multani for that matter) if anyone here knows of any. I'm comfortable with both the Devanagari script and the Perso Arabic script, so materials of either script will work.
I'll begin the topic with some lessons. I'll write them in Devanagari and in Roman script, english translations will be provided as well. Sindhi is also written in a form of perso arabic script, but my understanding of these types of scripts isn't very good yet, so I'll avoid using that script for the time being.
