Sunwar (suz)

Sunwar is a Northwestern Kiranti language spoken by about 25,000 people in eastern Nepal, in the districts of Ramechap and Okhaldhunga. In the available literature, it is known as ‘Sunwar’ (‘Sunuvar’ in Nepali) although it is known to its speakers as ‘Koic’ (‘Koints’ in English). Contact between the Sunwar and Nepali languages resulted in language change, most visible in the verbal system, where the older biactantial agreement system typical for Kiranti languages disappeared. Therefore Sunwar is a language with only subject marking agreement markers. Sunwar has a close relationship to Bahing, Hayu, Wambule and Jero.
