Definition

A phrasal verb that signifies to all South Asians the state of something (light switches, stoves, air conditioners, televisions, anything) being turned on and running.

Why say "turned on" when you can save at least two seconds of breath and say "onned"?

Usage

Mum: "Who onned the TV?"
Limbu: "Five minutes only, no?"
