In this unit, we’ll learn about the ‘jiim’ group (Devanagari: जीम | IPA: /d͡ʒiːm/; Pronunciation: ). And just like the ‘be’ group, all letters in the ‘jiim’ group share a similar basic-shape as can be seen here.
Above: Letters in the 'jiim' group. Read right-to-left ('jiim' comes first)
Letters are, again, differentiated by the number and placement of nuqte. For example, the letters ‘jiim’ and ‘KHe’ have one nuqta each. Yet, they are differentiated by the placement of the nuqta as shown below:
Above: Placement of the nuqta creates the difference between ‘jiim’ and ‘KHe’
Look at the animation for ‘jiim’ below to understand how these letters are written:
Above: The letter ‘jiim’ being written. Notice that the nuqta is placed after creating the ‘jiim’ basic-shape.
And now, let’s move on to learning about these letters in detail.
