Urdu numbers
« on: December 31, 2005, 03:48:23 AM »
when I speak to a friend if mine in Balochi he says his numbers in a different way. I say mine as follows -

Yak
Do
Say
Char
Panch
Shash
Apt
Asht
No
Dah etc.....

But he seems to use Urdu numbers. Can someone tell me how to learn these?

Hi Jan Mohammad:
 
You are speaking Baluchi numbers correctly but if your friend is using Urdu numbers it is his mistake.  Might be it is because of Urdu influence in his environment:
 
Anyways here is list of numbers in Urdu:
 
ek
do
teen
chaar
paan'ch
cheh
saat
aaT
nau
das
yaaraah /gyaraah / igyaara/ gyaaraaN (people of different accents use it differently)
baaraah
teraa
chaudah
pandrah
solah
satrah
aThaRa
unees
bees
 
If you are interested to learn Urdu I can provide you links of Urdu learning sites and articles.
 
Thanks
