Basic structure of Urdu sentence

Like every language Urdu has its own syntax. Once you have learned the basic structure of Urdu sentence it will be easy for you to understand hundreds of simple sentences used in daily conversation.

For better understanding we first look at English and Arabic structure.


Basic Structure of English Sentence:

Subject + Object + Verb

( I + eat + apple) 

Basic Structure of Arabic Sentence:

Verb + Subject + Object

( eat + I + apple)



Now we move to Urdu structure with examples.


Basic Structure of Urdu Sentence:

Subject + Object + Verb


( I + apple + eat )   - Present Indefinet Tense

(Main + sayb+ khata hn)

(Main + School + jata hn)

(Wo + gana + Gati hy)


(I + apple + am eating) - Present Continuous Tense

(Main + sayb + kha raha hn)

(Main + School + ja raha hn)

(Wo + gana + Ga rahi hy)



(I + apple + have eaten) - Present Perfect Tense

(Main + sayb + kha chuka hn)

(Main + School + ja chuka hn)

(Wo + gana + Ga chuki hy)


 I hope this will help you in learning urdu. If you need any clarification or you want to learn/practice Urdu one on one, just send me a message.



So, if I want to keep things simple, would the following be correct in Arabic?


Akila ana apple.


No, Its not correct. No need to specify ana because the form of verb itself identifies the subject.  


Akila ana apple


verb+subject + object

Akala tufah

For more details please ask in Arabic forum.


imran, that was very helpfull, but may be changing that 

Subject + Object + Verb
( I + eat + apple)

it is subject + Verb + object, for english part.

it will be more helpfull if you write the meaning of the words you use, so we enrich our vocabulary.

and for arabic post for Rafin, the right form is

Akal + tu + tufah

eat + i + apple

How about future tense?
