Rekhta (Urdū/, Hindī: रेख़्ता rekhtā; Persian "ریخته literally meaning "poured or molded" signifies the mixing of hindi Arabic and Persian which broke their original form) was the Persianized form of Hindwi, a language that combines Persian, Arabic and Hindī.[1] From the late 17th century till the closing decades of the 18th century, the term also referred to the Urdu-Hindustani language. This term was largely supplanted by the name "Hindwi" and later Urdu (although it continued to be used sporadically until the late 19th century).[2]
