Nepali is an Indo-Aryan language common to the country Nepal. It derives from Sanskrit.

Parts of Speech[edit]

Some essential templates are:

{{ne-pos}} : For headwords. Takes parameter 1 as the part of speech. Full use is:
{{ne-pos|<part of speech>|pron=<alternation pronunciation>, <another pron>}}
{{ne-x}} : Usage example template. Enclose words in <> for schwa dropping.
{{ne-l}} : For links to Nepali words. Enclose words in <> for schwa dropping.

Noun[edit]

Nouns, like all other parts of speech, use {{ne-pos}} for headwords. Declensions are handled with {{ne-decl-noun}} automatically. A noun should look like:
