    Here is one more link with a nice Gurumukhi alphabet song also. I hope you will enjoy and learn from these sites. I learnt it on line and I practiced by reading Gurumukhi Hukamnama from Harmandir Sahib every day. Regards and best wishes.

    This is one link that I will pursue.
    Mangat Rai Bharwaj: Colloquial Panjabi is supplemented by 2 cassettes @ 60 mins. If you make full use of the set, you'll have a good basic knowledge.
    The transcription system in C. Shackle: Punjabi (Teach yourself books) might be more scholarly, but even to a language nut like me, it is not too transparent. My copy is 1972, though, so things may have changed.
    Unfortunately (I think), neither book uses Gurmukhi throughout, almost only in the vocabulary sections.
    Despite those books (and others) and the link mentioned (which has a couple of sound examples to illustrate), I still don't understand the tones. And Swedish has two tones, and I'm studying Chinese... In addition, are the same tones used in all varieties of Panjabi, and does this feature replace the non-aspirated/aspirated distinction (like b/bh)?
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
