- proper n. An incorrect term sometimes used for the Devanagari writing script used for writing several Indian languages, including Sanskrit, Hindi, Marathi, Kashmiri, Sindhi, Bihari, Bhili, Konkani, and Bhojpuri. It is also used to write Nepali in Nepal. It is an abugida writing system (not properly called an alphabet) because the base consonant characters include a default schwa vowel sound unless it is modified or removed.
