Gurmukhi contains characters for the Punjabi language, as it is written in India. It was derived from the Landa alphabet and from the Nagari script. It was standardized in the 16th century and was designed to write the Punjabi language. Gurmukhi is a form of alphabet called an abugida, as each consonant has an inherent vowel that can be changed using vowel signs. The word Gurmukhi literally means “from the mouth of the Guru” based on the influence of Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh religion.
