Hindi As a Language of Medicine


(Vedic Sanskrit, Circa 2nd Millennium BCE – 600 BCE, the period after which it gave rise to middle IndoAryam Languages)
Hindi is a “Sanskritised register” of the Khariboli dilect. Like English, Hindi is very liberal in borrowing words from other sources. During the British Raj, (1757-1967) English gained a number of words from Hindi. Linguists refer to this as borrowing, but we are not likely to return any of this linguistic wealth. Some of these notable words are: Ganja, Bangles, Jaggernaut (from Tagannath), Thug, Loot and even Shampoo. Because of its flexible nature and ancient heritage derived from Sanskrit field too, Hindi has a great potential to be a medium of communication in the field of modern medicine.
