Nepali language[edit]

  • Halló! Is this the same ? Best regards Gangleri | Th | T 16:20, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
No - Newa (Nepal Bhasa in this article) is the local language of the Kathmandu Valley, whereas Nepali comes from further to the west. Newa is a Sino-Tibetan language, while Nepali is an Indo-European language. BovineBeast 16:28, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Capitalization scheme[edit]

  • Is there any rationale to the initial case of the romanizations in the list of common words and phrases? I can't see a pattern that tells me why some are capitalized and others lower-case. The devanagari spellings don't seem to differentiate. If no one explains the system or expresses a preference I'll go in eventually and make them uniform one way or t'other. --Haruo 06:46, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Citation needed[edit]

  • The article says, "Hindi is not a mother tongue in Nepal". हो र ? According to the 1991 census (via http://www.ethnologue.com/14/show_country.asp?name=Nepal), Nepal has 1,70,997 Hindi speakers. I assume they mean native speakers of Hindi; otherwise the number would be much higher. This should be clarified. 69.232.222.19 07:46, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Hindi is my mother tongue...Bhojpuri /awadhi/maithili are dialects of Hindi

Thanks for the information. It must have been overlooked. It is now corrected. Hindi is very similar to Maithili, Bhojpuri and Nepali. So, people of cities esp in Terai understand it. I could not find any information on second and third language of Nepalese population. However, as far as I know, in places where there are no cable lines and Hindi channels, the comprehensibility of Hindi is low even in Terai region (however, this should not be confused with Maithili or Bhojpuri which are the dominant languages in terai). In Chure, Hills or Mountains, people almost do not understand Hindi outside cities. As you have mentioned, more than 80 percent of Nepalese population do understand Hindi by now thanks to Nepal Television's regular broadcast of Mumbai based Hindi programs (not a single program of Nepalese Hindi speakers have been telecasted in Nepal Television till date). Thanks again.--Eukesh 12:57, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Classical Newari[edit]

Classical Newari was redirecting to Nepal Bhasa. I've no knowledge whatsoever of Newari, either classical or modern, but since ISO 639-2 have assigned a specific code to Classical Newari, I guess it deserves a specific article. I have created the stub, and let specialists see if part(s) of the historical section of Nepal Bhasa article should be moved there.universimmedia (talk) 22:27, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Scholars of Newar Studies[edit]

I am trying to create some pages about scholars who have or are working in Newar studies]. I do not know much though, so please help me. So far I have done Horst_Brinkhaus and Siegfried Lienhard Tibetologist (talk) 14:19, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Creating new page for Writing section[edit]

The article is becoming very long and difficult to navigate. Also, the old era and new era and then again renaissance era, modern era and other eras are confusing.

I would suggest streamlining the different periods in the development of the language. And moving the Writing system section to a main page. Karrattul (talk) 10:54, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Sindhupalchowk Pahari?[edit]

Is this really a dialect of Nepal? This sounds... just weird. --114.132.245.65 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 18:51, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
