What vowels are written in Urdu? And how would you write the name "Shadad"?

Read this brief section on vowels.

Just like in Arabic and Persian, short vowels (the diacritical marks known as tashkeel) are almost never written in Urdu. Sometimes they are included with alif if it's the first letter of a word, such as in « اُردو »

Kasra is also occasionally written to indicate use of the Izāfa construct borrowed from Persian, such as in « دلِ من »

Iorque wrote:And how would you write the name "Shadad"?

It really depends on how "Shadad" is pronounced. I have a hunch that the first vowel is short while the second is long. If so, then it would be « شداد »

Hope that helps and feel free to ask more questions :)

You got that right! I should have known this with my knowledge of Persian because I know all those letters, but I'm far from being confident in it and I don't know how the Urdu script differs from the Perso-Arabic script that I'm learning. That's why I decided to start with Hindi (yesterday) although I feel more attracted to Urdu.
Thank you, Velayati!

How would you write "Shadad" in devanagari? (Yes, I like mera nam)

Would it be something like this: शदाद?

You're most welcome, Shadad :D

The Urdu alphabet is identical to the Persian alphabet except for the addition of a few letters that represent sounds not found in Persian. Of course, pronunciation is much more varied. It should be very easy to learn when you decide to explore Urdu further.

To catch someone's attention, I would politely say something like the following:

zarā suniye
Just listen.

mujhe āp se kuch puchhnā hai
I have something to ask you.

Meera wrote:Like say I asked what time it was and they responded and I would say, Thanks, sorry for the bother. Or something along those lines

To thank someone after they've helped you...

[bohut] shukriya madad ke liye
[Many] thanks for the help.

waqt nekālne ke liye āpkā shukriya
Thank you for taking time (out of your schedule).

Why is that all Hindi courses are so different than the Hindi used in Bollywood movies. :doggy:
I just learned that ''Shukriya'' is Urdu and not Hindi. :? It's perplexing. :hmm:

I think I will start learning Hindi again, because Croatian TV will show an Indian soap opera, all 250 episodes in prime time (18 30 - 19 15) just before the main news program ;)

I don't understand:
Anjaana Anjaani is translated as Stranger, Stranger
but what is the difference, is it a different gender, which one is masculine, and which one is feminine? :hmm:

By the way, these words are so cute (although Aashiyana is cuter :whistle: ).
