Pronounciation

In Nepali, the v sound is much closer to a b sound than an actual v. Thus, it is better to pronounce it like a b.

Places

To ask, where are you, say Kata?.

Ma ghar maa xu means I am at home. It literally means Me home in am, so maa means in. Ghar (Home) can be replaces with a lot of things:

  • Ma Frankfurt maa xu (I’m in Frankfurt)
  • Ma Office maa xu (I’m at the office)
  • Ma Mark ko maa xu (I’m at mark’s place)

Love and affection

Timro yaad ayo means I miss you.

Food and Cooking

Khana khayou? means Did you eat? It literally means Food eat?, so the you is implied.
