They are not used that much but still is important to know them to be able to read Hindi.
Note the second letter is in the foot of the first..
Guess which is the combined form for
D and D ( Dd) ;
D and Y (Dya)
D and chesty D (Ddh)
h AND Y (Hya)....Note Y is in foot of H
Although they look difficult they are just combining two letters you have already learnt.
R and long U ( Roo)
L and Ri (Lri)
- Note that the small downward curve is often used to add a ri sound to many letters.. It can be written at the bottom when it is pronounced after the letter as in the lri sound here or at the top when the ri is pronounced before the letter.
and D and V (Dva)
Dont worry if you found this lesson difficult . these letters are used very rarely
.The only things left to learn are half letters and numbers and that we will do in the next lesson.
