 What are some words in Nepali that no other languages have. Like for instance, 'Tingo' is an Easter Island word for someone who borrows something from your house one by one until nothing is left. 'Lagom' is a Swedish word which means not less not much but just the right amount. 'Bakku Shan' is a Japanese word which means a girl who looks good from behind but not from the front. 

The one that comes to my mind in Nepali is 'Jutho'. Except Indians, I don't think anyone has that word. 'Kurkkuccha' is another one I think. What are some you guys know? I bet you can think of plenty. Let's enrich each other with some unprecedented vocabulary.

Also,  typical nepai sounding words like Doko, Boko, Namlo, Nanglo, Janto etc are believed to not share any root with sanskrit or any other language.

 yeah nakkli is used heavily in hindi too, asli nakkli types, when you use it for a girl, it simply refers to her fake beautly, so its not purely npelai. I think :)

Kurkuchha would be heels.

How about Bhunte, dalli, Soaltee etc? Anukaratmak is definately unique to Nepali language.

I doubt anukaranatmak is unique to nepali language.
tring, ring, boom. bang, splat are some imititative deive words in English.

Also animals sounds like moo, cockadoodle doo, chirp, screech, caw, chatter, chuckle, howl,  growl and hundreds others are all imitative deive words in English.

There is a difference between Anukaranatmak and the words you used. Boom, ring, Moo and everything else you listed are SOUNDS. Ma NITHRUKKA bhije. This is anukaranatmak, what's the exact translation? U sutukka ayo. There is no exact translation for SUTUKKA.

Stiffler bro,

Dyanga, gudunga, chyarra, fussa etc are also anukaranatmak, which are sounds. And also exist in other languages.

I am just clarifying that anukaranatmak sabdas don't just exist in nepali.

And there is an exact translation for sutukka, which is SNEAKILY.

 C'mon guys. Stick to the context. Look at the context. Aba khaapsey bhaneko Sherpa roti hola re tara khaapsey ta arule banaudaina kina ki tyo ta exclusive khaana ho, its not a describing word for anything. You get what I am saying? Jastai 'JOITINGREY' bhaneko swaasni ko farya muni lukney manchey. The Indians have 'Joruka Gulaam' but no one else. C'mon. Bring it. I'm sure we have like tons more. 'Thyaccha' and all are cool too. But a little bit more compact. Its a good start though. 'Bhustikrey' means khanchuwa, kaam nalagney manchey. English translation ko closest might be 'Freeloader' but it doesn't encapsulate 'kaam nagarney'. You see what I'm saying? 'Nepti' might mean someone with a blunt nose. English or Hindi might not have it. See what I'm sayin guys . . . Make it rain. C'mon.

Dynamite bro I see your point, but do you see mine with other anukaranatmak words I presented? I might not agree with the translation of sutukka. Sneakily is derived from Sneak and is simply and adverb of it. Sutukka has no root, i.e. not a derivation. Sneakily is NOT an exact translation, merely a synonym.

Haha what we should do is create english words for these nepali words

Sukulgunda = Carpet punk
bidhyanasta = education amnesia
