Punjabi is considered a "tone" language and Chinese is deemed to be the best example of a tonal language. Do we have anything resembling tone in Urdu or Hindi? I had in mind something like.. jab ek bajaa to vuh ghar aa gayaa skuul kii ghanTii bajaa! ek baj gayaa hai! Do you feel both words are pronounced identically? PS: I have a feeling I might have asked this kind of question but upon searching I did n't find anything. So, apologies in advance if I have.
