Hindi (pronunciation, Devanagari: हिन्दी or हिंदी, IAST: Hindī, IPA: [hɪnd̪iː]), an Indo-European language spoken mainly in northern and central India, is the official language of the Union along with English. It is part of a language continuum of the Indic family, bounded on the northwest and west by Punjabi, Sindhi, and Gujarati; on the south by Marathi and Konkani; on the southeast by Oriya; on the east by Bengali; and on the north by Nepali.
More narrowly, Hindi also refers to a standardized register of Hindustani termed khariboli, that emerged as the standard dialect.
