These ten words are part of a list of the most commonly used Hindi words (courtesy of Hindi Google Group and Resource Center for Indian Language Technology Solutions). Many many thanks to Vinay from the Hindi group for dropping by to advise and correct on Wednesday. (I'll respond to the comment soon. I'm trying to digest it still...). I don't think I could have as much patience as you to read and try to help someone like me stumble and fumble through this. Words ranked #61 to #70:

61. वहाँ va-hāṃ (adverb) there.

62. भारत bhā-rat (m. noun) India.

63. लिया li-yā (verb) taken. This is the singular perfect form of लेना, to take.

64. प्राप्त prāpt (adjective) 1. obtained; acquired; incurred. 2. come upon, found.

65. उनकी un-kī (adjective) theirs; his - formal

66. लोगों (lo-goṃ) (pl. noun) people. This is the oblique plural form of लोग, people.

67. गयी (ga-yī) (verb) went. This is the feminine singular past participle of जाना, to go.

68. लगा (la-gā) (verb) seemed. This is the masculine singular past participle of लगना, to seem.

69. अन्य (an-ya) (adjective) other, different.

70. होगा (ho-gā) (verb) will be. This is the third person future tense of होना, to be.

There should be some sort of disclaimer that goes with all of this, say: every time I write "this is" it really means "this is probably, I think." Help with this post comes from:
