In English language there are vowels and consonants. Likewise, in Nepali also there are vowels and consonants. The difference is that in Nepali all the vowels appear in the beginning and the consonants form another group. There are 12 vowels and 33 consonants characters in Nepali alphabet.
Let's start with vowels.
In Nepali they are also know as `Swar (स्वरों)`. There are two types of vowels. The first one is an independent vowel, which is used at the beginning of a syllable. The second one is dependent vowel, which is used when the vowel follows a consonant.
In Nepali, they are called `vyanjan (व्यंजन)`. They are normally considered to have a basic form which consists of a consonant pronounced with an inherent ‘a’ sound. The table below shows 33 consonant letters and their pronunciation.
Nepali numerals are the symbols used to write numbers in the Nepali script. They are used to write decimal numbers, instead of the latin numbers.
