Importance of Vowel Signs

These series will bring to you a short post related to Hindi language / grammar. It is aimed at non-native speakers of Hindi who are learning to speak, read and write Hindi language.

Hence in this post let's look at the importance of vowel signs or मात्रा in Hindi language. 

Have a look at this example of similar Hindi words : अनिल and अनल 

These words are similar as they use the all same letters, so what is the difference in them?

Well, the difference is in their meaning which is totally different from one another.

The first word अनिल means air or wind; while 

the second word अनल means fire 

Now you see how a simple मात्रा may change the meaning of a word completely! 

Always keep this in mind and use the correct spelling when writing or you may end up saying something totally unintended and opposite of what you wanted to say. Like this? Then do share it with friends
