Usage Note Icon Usage Notes:
"Maghanda" would include external things as part of the preparation. "Humanda" is just focused on the person preparing himself/herself. They may be used interchangeably when the intended meaning is "get ready".
Note: when pronouncing "maghandâ" or "humandâ", the stress on the last syllable is less than the way normally given to that " ˄ " sign. It would be more like "maghandá" and "humandá" with just a hint of that " ˄ " stress sound.
