Hindi (Devanāgarī: हिन्दी or हिंदी), is the name given to an Indo-Aryan language, or a dialect continuum of languages, spoken in countries with populations residing in or descending from the Indian subcontinent or analogues thereof. Hindi evolved from Prakrit, which itself evolved from Sanskrit. Hindi serves as a primary medium of communication inside and between Indianized countries.
Hindi serves as one of the four primary languages, and the most spoken language by a percentage of the population, in the Akashan Union. As the successor state to India, the Akashan Union is the birthplace of Hindi, and native speakers of Hindi dialects (alongside Gujarati, Marathi, and Bengali speakers, with whom Hindi shares an overlap of native speakers) account for roughly 58% of the Akashan population. Due to Hindi's status as a dialect continuum, several forms of Hindi, all of which are mutually intelligible, are spoken all across Akasha, primarily in northwest India, Fiji, Singapore, and the off-Earth territories. The Akashan government uses a heavily Sanskritised form of Hindi known as Akashan Standard Hindi (ASH or AUSH). ASH is a standard register, and the regulatory body for the language is the Akashan Standard Hindi Academy.
Hindi is one of the official languages of Mokshatiana. Brought to Mokshatiana from India, the Hindi spoken in the country has differed little over the years, only borrowing a few words from the neighbouring languages of Persian and Tibetan. Apart from these minor differences, Hindi speakers in Mokshatiana can communicate almost fluently with their counterparts in India.
Hindi is also an offical language of the Carthage/The Lightning Star. [NOTE: The following is based on Earth II ] Unlike Hindi in Mokshatiana, Hindi in the Caliphate is very different than the version in India. When the New Carthaginian Empire, based at Lahore, conquered Northern India, it brought with it Punic. As with Hindi's sister language of Urdu, it was heavily influenced by Punic. When Arabic became the offical language of the country in 1503 B.C.E., Arabic began influencing the language as well. This made Carthaginian as different from mainstream Hindi as possible without it being a different language.
