Language has its peculiar system of grammar. Some of its parts are very standard and generic and some are explicitly specific. This is principally, the study of more or less, about rules and principles that make the structure of sentence or paragraph. This may include morphology, phonology and syntax, frequently accompanied by phonetics, semantics, and pragmatics. Speakers of any language have a set of adopted and assumed directions and procedures for using that language and such rules create grammar of the language. The system of singular and plural is one of the most imperative features of any language and so is that of Sindhi as well. It prevails with a variety of rules and regulation in Sindhi language also. Keeping the grammatical category of number in view, the singular and plural, is essentially figured presentation of vocabulary. How singular and plural of nouns, adjectives, masculine, feminine characteristically are made by changing the quantitative data. Most commonly, therefore, plurals are used to denote two or more of something, although they may also denote more than fractional, zero or negative amounts. An example of a plural is the English word cats, which corresponds to the singular cat. Sindhi language is an Indo-Aryan language having relations with various language families. It has been under strong influence of Arabic, Persian and Hindi. It has its own grammar system that is based on its own phonological and other grammatical aspects. The singular and plural system of Sindhi language has some certain sort of topographies and structure unlike Arabic, Urdu or Persian and has specialized context having different identifications of a number of parlances of various geographical parts of Sindh. The dialect based identification, representing two key parts of northern and southern Sindh, popularly called Uttar and Laar. It has thus particularity in context of making singulars and plurals.
