Gujarati Alphabet


The Gujarati script is an abugida used to write the Gujarati and Kutchi languages spoken in southwestern India. Its ancestor is  Brahmi 11000–1104D . Actually Gujatari looks a lot like the  Devanagari 0915–0945 script. The only significant difference is the absence of the characteristic horizontal line running above the letters. Plus, there are some modifications to several characters.

The script has undergone various modifications and reforms over the years. In its modern form, it consists of 47 primary letters, including 14 vowels and 33 consonants. In addition to Gujarati, the script is also used to write other languages such as Kutchi, Bhili, and Gamit.

The Gujarati script has played an important role in preserving and promoting Gujarati literature and culture. It has been used for centuries to write poetry, prose, religious texts, and official documents. With the advancement of technology, the script is now widely used in digital platforms, publications, and communication in the Gujarati-speaking community.
