Etymology[edit]

From Latin India, from Ancient Greek Ἰνδία ‎(Indía), from Ἰνδός ‎(Indós, Indus River), from Old Persian 𐏃𐎡𐎯𐎢𐏁 ‎(hindūš) (Persian هند ‎(Hend)) from Sanskrit सिन्धु ‎(síndhu, a river, stream).

Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

India ‎(plural Indias)

  1. A country in South Asia, official name Republic of India, and its territory.
  2. (chiefly historical, proscribed in modern use) An area of land in Southern Asia, traditionally delimited by the Himalayas and the Indus river; the Indian subcontinent.
  3. (historical, often "British India") A territory of the British Empire, chiefly comprising the modern day countries of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Burma.
  4. The letter I in the ICAO spelling alphabet.

Usage notes[edit]

When discussing the pre-modern history of South Asia, naming the entire subcontinent India is common. For discussing the current states, which include the Republic of India, this can cause offense and confusion and is usually avoided with the terms Indian Subcontinent or South Asia.

At times when multiple countries existed in South Asia, these have sometimes been pluralised as Indias or Indies. The word Indies survives in some place names such as East Indies and West Indies but is otherwise obsolete.
