Help:IPA for Hindi and Urdu The charts below show the way in which the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) represents Hindi and Urdu pronunciations in Wikipedia articles.

So now, the site-map cum inventory serves as the Mead Project's "default" page. The site has grown considerably since the last update.
