Mohmil (Urdu: مہمل) is the name given to meaningless words in the Urdu language used mostly for generalization purposes. The mohmil word usually directly follows (but sometimes precedes) the meaningful word that is generalized. The mohmil word usually rhymes with the meaningful word, or shares the same consonants.
Some common examples of mohmil words:
- Gol mol
- Theek thaak
- Khaana vaana
- Kursi vursi
- Dhoom dhaam
- Roti shoti
- Chup chaap
