Hindi (or Hindustani) is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by over 500 million people, mostly in India where it is one of the two official languages of communication, along with English. It is the third most spoken language in the world, after Chinese and English. Hindi is written with the Devanagari script, but this Freelang dictionary is a romanized version.

I feel extreme pleasure presenting this dictionary. Here are some tips to make your learning a bit easier. Just observe when the syllable is to be stressed, this can be spotted wherever an alphabet is repeated. For example: blessing - aashirwaad (stretch the 'a')
Many words in English are as they are in English, for example, a brush is called a brush in spoken Hindi, a doctor is called a doctor. But there exist extremely pure Hindi words, which have been included in the dictionary.
No slang has been included in the dictionary.
The update has marked pronunciation for some words. I was unable to add such pronunciation for all words. Users should please bear with this. Since I add words during leisure and leisure has become a rarity for me as I am graduating this year.
