Chapter Summary

This chapter presents some concluding thoughts on the research of the book: the comparison of several Hindi and Urdu stories. To most linguists, Hindi and Urdu are varieties of the same language. In modern times, Hindi became central to nation-building in India, while after Partition, Urdu became the national language of the newly created Muslim state of Pakistan. On the grammatical level, the author came to the conclusion that the differences between Hindi and Urdu are not substantial, but that there are a few aspects in the grammars of both languages that deserve some further research, as they could prove to be (existing or developing) points of grammatical divergence between Hindi and Urdu.

Keywords: grammatical divergence; Hindi and Urdu stories; linguists
