Where do we mark the vowel on the consonants that connect to the line in 2 places (m, p, ph, etc)?

Hi Richard,

Example of vowels: अ आ इ ई उ उ etc.

Here are the vowels conjugated and marked with m, p, and ph:

म + आ = मा
प + इ = पि
फ + ई = फी
म + उ = मु
म + ऊ = मू

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Deven

I am wondering when you are writing the vowels on top.... where should the placement be when connecting to the consonant. In the example above... with P... should the vowel connect on the left side or the ride side of the P?

(Oh... and how do we type in Hindi in the forum? )

The only vowel that goes to the left of the letter you start with is इ. Everything else is read from left to right just like English except for that one exception. When conjugating इ, it has to be written like the example: पि. 

Examples of words:

विज्ञान
पिल्ला
लिपि
किसान
रिश्तेदार

The way I type in Hindi in the forum is by inserting the Hindi keyboard on your keyboard choices.

Hope that helps!

Let me try using a specific example. When combining ि and प, does the curved line of ि touch the left vertical line of प? or the right vertical line? Is there a PROPER way of writing this? or is it simply the preference of the writer? regional issue?

Yes, the ि does touch the left vertical line of the प. That part of the script is written like that to not confuse the short sound with the long ee sound. Yes, this is the proper way of writing or else it would be read and said wrong.

Hope this helps!
