Adjectives come before nouns. Nouns and adjectives are inflected for gender (Masculine/Feminine), number (Singular/Plural) and case (Direct/Oblique).

With some individualized exceptions Naskh has actually been the generally used script from inside the modern era of Pashto, roughly corresponding because of the late 19th and 20th centuries, automobile greater adaptability for typesetting. Even lithographically reproduced Pashto (generally in Pakistan) may perhaps be calligraphied in Naskh in general, since it was before adopted as standard.
