Shapes In Nepali ling app

Knowing the आकार (pronounced as Akara) or shapes in Nepali is essential. After all, how will you describe the round jeri, a crispy Nepali dessert that you ate on the street, or the triangular stall where you bought the best fruit at the end of the market? Shapes in Nepali help you describe details, so let’s have a look at them together.

Learning the translations for shapes in another language is important because it helps you understand the environment around you. It also makes your trip more enjoyable when you can describe things and places in Nepali rather than just relying on English translations. Fortunately, it’s easy to remember some of the most common shapes in this language because some of them sound pretty much the same as in English.

Don’t believe me? Take a look at some of the most common shapes in Nepali, and see if they sound familiar!

Names Of Shapes In Nepali

Shapes are आकार Akara in Nepali, and the meaning word draw is आकर्षित Ākarṣita. Can you see the similarity between the two words? A shape is an outline of something which must be drawn. Hence the words in Nepali are similar or linked. Pretty cool, right?
