............................................Hindi in word construction.

So before we start learning and making words in Hindi, it is very important that we familiarize ourselves with the term maatraa, because we will not use a vowel to form a word, as we do in the English language, but we will be using a maatraa instead.

In this session, we will start making words with the first two vowels and those are -

Vowel.....................Matra................Pronunciation..................as in........................exp. (translation)

. अ...............................n/a........................a (short).............ammonia .......................यह, yaha (this)

आ...............................ा.........................aa(longer)..............bananaa.......................बात, baata (talk)

Now, as we can easily notice in the example above, the first vowel has apparently no maatraa. But that is not the case. If we will carefully pronounce the Hindi consonants, we will find that at last there will be a sound very similar to the letter "a" in the word "ammonia". This indicates that the vowel is already present in all consonants so there is no need for an extra maatraa.
