Nepali, Maithili and Hindi influence is possibly reflected here. For example, most speakers would apply nasalisation to the 1sg (11a), 2sg (11b) and 3sg (11c-d) pronouns, the relative pronoun (11e) and some interrogative pronouns (11f). I have marked nasalisation in the broad transcription in the 1sg, 2sg and 3sg pronouns, relative and interrogative pronouns which are deemed nasalised by most speakers.
