Standardized Roman Sindhi Illustrated Alphabet Chart

How to read this chart:

  1. In each cell there is one Sindhi sound explained. The Romanized Sindhi script appears in Red on top of the image. The Arbi Sindhi script symbol and Devnagiri script for the same sound appear in black. For some sounds there are more than one script symbol in Arbi Sindhi as you can see for ‘a’. For some sounds there is no corresponding appropriate Devnagiri script.

  2. In general the image shows the object for which corresponding word in Romanized Sindhi is shown in Red font, for example a’nbu in first sound ‘a’. For certain unique Arbi Sindhi Cononants, signs Caret ^ (for implosive – tongue related sounds) or Tilde ~ (for Retroflex – dental related sounds) were used as suffix to create matching Roman Consonant. Exceptionally ~ was also used on n to make n~ (e.g. van~u = tree). Apostrophe' is used before n to make `n which denotes Nasal Sound.

  3. Most Sindhi words end with a shorter (half vowel) sounds. These short vowels are only three. These are: a, i, u. When you hear spoken Sindhl words you will be able to note these. For example, in a'nbu, u is pronounced as "bu" but not strongly as in English `Bush'

  4. The English word for the object is given in BLUE CAPITALS font
