Hindi Grammar

A language is “set of words” abiding “set of rules”. This “set of rules” we call it as Grammar. Grammar tells us about the order in which words are to be put to form correct sentences.

Each language has its own rules or its own Grammar.

Hindi grammar is slightly different from English grammar. In the following sections, we will go through the basic blocks of Hindi grammar and compare them with their English counterparts.
