How to Write Half Letter in Nepali Unicode
We Nepalese are aware that our Language is pretty complex, right?
Half letters like “मान्छे” and “व्यापारी” require certain attention but they aren’t difficult in Unicode.
Here’s how you can write to them.
You write half letters by using Hal (् /hal/ ) after the letter. You have to press “/” for Hal. For example,
- मान + ् /hal/ + छे = मान्छे
In the modern Unicode, you can simply type “manche” to get “मान्छे”. You can always try and see how it works!
There is one more thing to remember. If you want to display “स्कुल”, you need to type “skul”, and not “school”. This becomes easier as you get used to it.
