Nepali Pronouns

Since I'm married to a woman from Nepal, I've been slowly trying to learn the language. My first systematic effort at it was to figure out the list of pronouns. No simple "I, you, he, she, they, it"... there's no gender to pronouns, but there are up to four levels of formality or respect.

Perhaps the following list will be of use to someone else trying to learn the language, or to go from Nepali to English. I need to dig up a paper copy I edited a bit, so there may be minor errors on "these" and "those".
