Memoni Grammar and Sentence Structure
(note: more research is needed to support some of the comments)

It is generally recognized that the Memoni language is originate from an ancient Sindhi which is belongs to an Indo-Iranian (North-Western Zone) family of languages.


Like many Indian languages, Memoni nouns are either masculine or feminine and they could have singular and plural forms.  The Memons borrow vast majorities of the nouns from Hindustani (mixture of Urdu & Hindi) languages

A Nouns is a person, place or thing.
Person: man (maru), woman (bai), teacher (ustad), Zulekha, Kareem, 
Place: home (gher), office (defter), town (gave), Pakistan
Thing: table (table), car (gady), banana (banana), money (paisa), dog (kuto), monkey (bunder)

Like English, Memoni nouns often come after a determiner ( a, this, my etc.)  and the  must agree to direct object (noun)

 a man - akro maru ;  she is  a girl - ee akry chockery eye - that is my book  -  ee meji chopry eye




The  pronouns are small words which substitute nouns, he, you, ours, themselves, some, each.  In Memoni the pronouns are divided into fewer categories than English

1. Subject  Pronouns:

Unlike in English, the 2nd person singular "You" is segregated a polite form use for a respect generally for a stranger, elderly and well respected persons including parent and relatives and the second  is informal form use among the friends, parent and elderly relatives addressing to younger family members etc.   Furthermore,  the third person singular (he, she, it)  and plural (they)  including demonstrative pronouns (this these, those) are divided into two category one for near object and person and second for far object and person.  (more research is needed to support this conclusion)

I awN
we assaN
you (polite) iNe
you tu
he, she, it, this these (near) ee
he, she, they it, that, those   (far) ou

2. Other Pronouns:

In Memoni there are no significant difference between the object ,possessive and reflexive pronouns.  In addition these pronouns are further conjugated for masculine and feminine .

Other Pronouns  Singular Plural
Object Pronouns :  me you him her it us you them
Possessive Pronouns : mine yours his hers its       ours yours theirs
Reflexive Pronouns : myself yourself himself herself itself ourselves yourselves themselves

 Unlike English,  the Memoni the proposition is generally comes after a noun or a verb

Adjectives are words that describe or modify another person or thing in a sentence

Like English, the position of Memoni adjectives nearly always appear immediately before the noun that they modify. but in noun phrase they usually after the noun that they modify.



Articles, determiners, and quantifiers are those little words that precede and modify nouns:

Determiners are used in front of nouns to indicate whether you are referring to something specific or something of a particular type.

the definite article : the
demonstratives : this, that, these, those
possessives : my, your, his, her, its, our, their
the indefinite articles : a, an
a few a little all another any both each either enough every few fewer less little many more most much neither no other several some

When referring to a quantity of something without being precise, use a quantifier. Quantifiers are normally followed by of.

bahuj kum   too much work 
thoro kum    less work    thorey car  few cars

''a" is the only article in Memoni akro (one or "a" masculine) and akri (one or "a" feminine) there is no equlent for "The" or "an"


saro chuckro good boy   sari chukrey  good girl
maro laumbo aae     byrey lumbi aae
meetho khawo  (sweet rice)   meethi khir  (sweet rice pudding)


Verbs carry the idea of being or action in the sentence.

In a Memoni sentence, a verb generally appears at the end of the sentence.
Memoni verb may vary (inflected) in form, (there are very few form) according to many factors,  including its tense, aspect, mood and voice. It  also agree with the person, gender, and/or number of some of its arguments (subject, object, etc.).  Note more research may be needed.
