The Urdu language – characteristics and spread

Urdu is an Indo-European language dating from the period of the Delhi Sultanate and the Mughal Empire in the South Asian subcontinent (Pakistan and India). The language mainly developed during the reign of Akbar (1556–1605); a huge multi-ethnic mixture of Persians (Farsi), Hindus (Pankrit, Sanskrit), and Turks (Turkish) accumulated in migrant farms and camps, and Urdu (originally Ordu) developed as a pastiche of these languages before finally forming a separate language.

Urdu is the official language in Pakistan and some Indian states with high Muslim populations. Although only a minority of the population of ten million speak Urdu as a native language in Pakistan, the Urdu-speaking population is constantly growing as it serves as a lingua franca between various regional languages.

Urdu is one of the twenty-three officially recognised national languages in India, and is spoken mainly in the regions of Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. Urdu has 58 million native speakers across the world, plus another hundred to hundred and forty-plus million that speak Urdu as a second language.
