This Gurmukhi Script

The Gurmukhi script, also known as Punjabi script, is used to type in the Punjabi language, which is primarily spoken in the Punjab region of India and Pakistan. The script was developed by the Sikh gurus in the 16th century and is used not only for writing Punjabi but also for several other languages spoken in the Punjab region, such as Sindhi, Dogri, and Lahnda.

Key features of the Punjabi (Gurmukhi) script include:

  1. Consonant Characters: The script consists of characters representing consonant sounds. Each consonant character typically has an inherent vowel sound ('a'), and other vowel sounds are indicated using vowel signs or matras.

  2. Vowel Characters: In addition to consonant characters, there are separate characters for vowel sounds. These vowel characters are used to indicate standalone vowel sounds or to modify the inherent vowel sound of a consonant character.

  3. Matras (Vowel Signs): Matras or vowel signs are used in the Punjabi script to represent vowel sounds. These matras are attached to consonant characters to modify their pronunciation. The matras can be placed above, below, or next to the consonant character.

  4. Numerals: The Punjabi script includes its own set of numerals, which are used for writing numbers in Punjabi and other languages that use the Gurmukhi script.

  5. Writing Direction: The Punjabi script is typically written from left to right, with spaces used between words to separate them.
