Hindi is one of the many languages spoken in India, one of the few countries without a national language. However, the government’s official language is Hindi and English. Hindi is the most spoken or understood speech of Indians. Over 70% of Indians speak a language from the Indo-European language, but the Indian languages belong to a different sub-group. Indian languages belong to the Indo-Iranian languages, which form the subgroup of Indo-Aryan. Hindi is one of India’s many Indo-Aryan languages. It’s a modern Indo-Aryan language that is a descendant of Vedic Sanskrit, the country’s earliest speech. Vedic Sanskrit evolved to Classical Sanskrit, which then eventually changed to the Prakrit languages. The Apabhramsha dialects is a descendant of Prakrit, serving as lingua franca up to the 13th century AD. The Delhi Sultanate’s Persian rulers from 1206 to 1526 referred to the dialect as Hindavi. During that time, the Persian language began to mix with the Apabhramsha dialects that would later become Hindi (in India) and Urdu (in Pakistan).
Hindi is the official language of India. It is also a minority language in the United Arab Emirates, and many other countries speak the language to some extent. Apart from India, other countries that speak Hindi include Nepal, Suriname, Mauritius, Trinidad and Tobago, Fiji, South Africa, and the United States.
The question of Hindi dialects can be quite difficult because people tend to group almost all Indian languages under Hindi. In many instances, Maithili, Pahari, Bihari, and Rajasthani, among other Indian languages end up classified as Hindi. However, they are, in fact, separate languages.
Generally speaking, Hindi has two dialectical zones – Western Hindi and Eastern Hindi. Western Hindi is from the Shauraseni Prakrit (Apabhramsa form) with other dialects under it. Different accents in Western Hindi include Haryanvi from Haryana and Kannauji from the western and central Uttar Pradesh. Braj Bhasha is also a dialect of Western Hindu spoken mostly in western Uttar Pradesh and other parts of Haryana and Rajasthan. Lastly, there is Bundeli that the people of southwestern Uttar Pradesh, as well as central and west Madhya Pradesh spoke. On the other hand, Eastern Hindi evolved from Prakit’s Ardhamagadhi version. One of the accents under Eastern Hindi is Chhattishgarhi from the central and northern Chhattisgarh and southeast Madhya Pradesh. Awadi of the central and northern Uttar Pradesh, as well as Fiji, is also Eastern Hindi. Lastly, there’s Bagheli from the southeastern Uttar Pradesh, and the central and north Madhya Pradesh.
