{jcomments on}For long since the advent of electronic communication for the common people, Hindi and other non-English languages were encoded in Roman itself. So much so that Hindi encoded in Roman and not Deonagari, the official script of the language, has earned a character of its own and has contributed much to what is now being termed as “Hinglish”.

Defining Hinglish

No definition of Hinglish can be given for sure. No surveys are present to show who uses it, and how much and in what context this is being used. Hindi/Urdu/Hindustani, all being written in Roman can be comfortably termed as Hinglish. Going by this definition, we can safely say that there is a lot text available online and much of it has already passed the electronic communication channel (through SMSes, mails etc.)
