Definition of Word

The form in which one or more than one is understood is called ‘Vachan’ in Hindi grammar.

In other words – the form of noun, pronoun, adjective and verb which senses the number, it is called ‘Vachan’.

The form of a noun in which a person, thing is known to be more than one or to be one is called a word. That is, the form of a noun in which the number is understood is called a word. For example, a girl plays. Girls play.

In these sentences, the word ‘girl’ is indicating to be one and the word ‘girls’ is indicating to be more than one. So it is clear that the word ‘girl’ is of singular and the word ‘girls’ is of plural.
