Word order in Nepal

The Nepali language is SOV type "subject-object-verb" like many other languages (Japanese, Burmese, Basque, Pashto and Persian). The verb, even in a simple sentence, is at the end of a sentence. The sentence always starts with the subject followed by the objects (direct or indirect object, time or place adverb, etc. ...). A sentence like "I'm learning Nepali language in Kathmandu" will be expressed this way "ma Nepali bhaasa kathmandu-maa sikchu I - Nepali - language - Kathmandu in - teach". This construction is more difficult to assimilate in sentences with two verbs or more. To know more "Method of Nepali language"
