Welcome to the Vocabulary module of Punjabi wikibook! Knowledge of Gurmukhi script is a prerequisite for this module. If you have not mastered it you are strongly advised to go back to the Gurmukhi script module and practise thoroughly before returning. In this module you will be expected to have basic skill of using the letters, matras and the diacritics and to read the printed/written Punjabi words.

The module has been divided into twenty chapters, each chapter consisting of a classified group of words. Some of the chapters are sub divided into sessions depending upon the amount of vocabulary it contains. You are expected to devote about an hour to each lesson/session in which you will learn about 20 to 30 words. After you are through with this module you will have a wealth of around 500 commonly spoken Punjabi words.

During the course of the module you will also learn some linguistic patterns and rules of grammar. The linguistic pattern or rules of grammar are not required to be memorized, rather you should look out for understanding the language points from these rules/patterns.
