Abstract: Fiji Hindi (FH) is spoken by Fiji Indians not only in Fiji but in different parts of the world they have migrated to. FH has been studied by a few scholars but an in-depth study has never been carried out on it. It varies all over Fiji. The differences are minimal, confined to some vocabulary and verb endings. This sketch grammar is of FH as spoken in the Nasinu area only. It begins with a brief description of its phonology and then moves onto the word classes. The following FH word classes are described: nouns (including noun formation), determiners, quantifiers (including numerals and ordinals), adjectives, pronouns, postpositions, verbs and their morphology, adverbs and particles.
