  1. Zane Says:

    Hindi does have the velar nasal, as far as I know. It’s written as ङ, is it not?

  2. Anvita Abbi Says:

    Yes, that is part of the Hindi alphabets which is never used in isolation. all velar nasals are allophonic and appear before the velars as a dot above the preceding consonant letter as in मांग, कंघा, नंगा, झांक etc.
