The Oxford English Urdu Dictionary is now available for FREE! The most authoritative language tool available for the Urdu language of Pakistan and India. This is an electronic version of the world famous Urdu dictionary Feroz-ul-Lughat written by Moulvi Ferozuddin. It's an UrduUrdu Dictionary. It contains over. bilingual dictionaries, of which the Qaumi English-Urdu Dictionary. ( henceforward, QD) . been metamorphosed into a noun by the Pakistani bureaucracy.

Language and other forms of symbolic communication, such as art, enable people to create, explain, and record new ideas and information. Bough has defended the practice of following along patriotic lines: We can appreciate the feeling of a scholar for whom a familiar Latin word had a wealth of association and rich connotation; we must admit the reasonableness of his desire to carry such a word over into his English writing.

This motive actuated may men who were both earnest and sincere in their desire to relieve English of the charge of inadequacy and inelegance. Let us see some of the proposed Urdu equivalents. The problems has already been noticed and various causes and cures have been identified but surprisingly many of them are so artificial and alien to the very psychology of language that their viability has always been open to question.

The conservatives believe in the purity and prestige of their language and want to enrich Urdu from its own domestic resources without resorting to any foreign language, least of all English. Jamil Jalibi in his phenomenal work Qaumi English Urdu Dictionary defends the strangeness and unfamiliarity of Urdu words in the following words: 39 Possibly during this process of linguistic blend and linguistic formation you find, at times, a sense of strangeness but with the passage of time, usage and currency this strangeness will wear off and new linguistic dimensions will emerge.

In the preface of Qaumi English Urdu Dictionary, he says: Possibly every English word or terminology has been provided with Urdu equivalents.

Keeping any possible inability of Urdu equivalents to fulfill your need or your dislike for them in view, we have also explained the central idea or meaning residing in that particular word. Thus having got that idea, you yourself can coin new word or terminology depending on your own creative power. Let us analyse the total sum of the problem: 1. Jalibi has himself admitted that Urdu equivalents may not always fulfill their desired role.

He has tacitly acknowledged the potential dislike of the people for these equivalents. Ultimately the responsibility of coining new words and terminologies has been assigned to the speakers themselves which does not solve the problem.

This remarkable work is based upon Concise Oxford Dictionary First published in , with a recent edition in Though more elaborate and less conservative, Haqqi has mostly been too condensed in his definitions and illustrations.

But surprisingly, sometimes, he has ignored even the most widely used English words and has just relied on obsolete Urdu equivalents.

Why this inconsistency? Extracts taken from Haqqi 41 Extract taken from Jalibi Such is the vague and confusing nature of the solutions available.

Actually any such attempt is doomed to failure. These borrowed words are so common in Urdu that they are easily understood without causing any communicative problem. Moreover they seem to be more natural and expensive than their Urdu equivalents.

Still some of our scholars are safeguarding the purity of Urdu against any change. Ikram has put forward a somewhat impractical view: The reality is, that with just a bit effort, even the most difficult foreign English expressions yield to their meaningful equivalents in our own Pakistani national languages…What is lacking is the genuine will and goodwill to discover the obvious the vernacular equivalents of English terms…One can be indulgent towards the innocent illiterates, but what to do with educate elite?

The trend setters and pace promoters. Using technical and scientific terminology or jargon is another matter… Higher Science Education may need inputs from foreign languages.

Words also get absorbed or assimilated from one language into another, over time, as a result of quite natural and normal intercultural and interlinguistic interaction. So not only technical or scientific but social as well as 43 public words are also making their way into Urdu.

In line with the aims set in the paper, we can also make a brief comparative study of borrowings in English. English from its inception is in habit of adopting words from quite a number of languages and this habit still flourishes. Quirk has observed: The vocabulary was augmented by borrowing and adaption of Latin and Greek words, or, as time went on, by the formation of words in English- speaking countries according to the Latin and Greek models.

The habit of neo-classical formation still flourishes in certain learned areas of vocabulary, particularly in the natural sciences. In addition, certain processes have led to the creation of many new words as well as to be establishment of patterns for further expansion.

This striking similarity can be understood by the following analysis of Bough: The scholarly monopoly of Latin throughout the Middle Ages had left the vernaculars underdeveloped along certain lines. Now that this monopoly was being broken, the deficiencies of English were at the same time revealed.

English was undoubtedly inadequate as compared with the classical languages, to express the thought which those languages 44 embodied and which in England was now becoming part of a rapidly expanding civilization. Mario Pei further says about the continuing enrichment of English: Despite the warnings of linguistic purists, new words are constantly being coined and usages modified to express new concepts.

Its vocabulary is constantly enriched by linguistic borrowing, particularly by cross- fertilizations from American English. Because it is capable of infinite possibilities of communication, the English has become the chief international language.

Time, history and usage say what is true of English should also be true of Urdu. Moreover, any historical study of a word is irrelevant to its status as an illustrative symbol of contemporary phenomenon. So it is time we gave up such a protectionist stance on Urdu and let it go its way and follow whatever is natural to a language. Today enlarging the vocabulary is one of the major problems of Urdu, and it is not difficult to realize why it is so.
