The Urdu Writing System.
Bright, William; Khan, Saeed A.
This booklet describes the Urdu writing system, and is part of a series of teaching materials for teaching Urdu. A general introduction outlining the main characteristics of the system is followed by a presentation of the alphabet. Letters symbolizing the same sound are then discussed, followed by the vowels. Non-connectors, or letters not having cursive linking to the following letter, are described, as well as connectors, which comprise all remaining letters. Ligatures, which are special combinations of two letters, are then presented, and the text concludes with a discussion of numbers and punctuation. A sample text is provided. (CLK)
