The Devanagari (literally "divine urbane script") is an abugida of Indian origin. It is used for writing Sanskrit, Hindi, Marathi, Bhojpuri, and Nepali. The alphabet is distinguished by a horizontal line running across the top section of a sentence, only ending when the sentence ends or when it is separated with a comma or other punctuation.
