Terminasion in present

Conjugation in present tense terminated by –nuhunchhā (नुहुन्छ):

During the previous lessons, we learned that the Nepali language has four levels of politeness (of which three are generally used). The termination –nuhunchhā is a correspondent of the third and fourth level of politeness. Thus, it can be used with the pronouns “tāpaï - तपार्इ, hājur - हजुर, wāhã - वहाँ, tāpaïhāru - तपार्इहरू, hājurhāru - हजुरहरू and wāhãhāru - वहाँहरू .”
