    Why is the word 'nung' a relative pronoun?

      The relative pronoun "nung" is used primarily to disambiguate when it is important to distinguish relative clauses from subordinate or other clauses. When it can be understood from context, "nung" can be dropped.

    according to http://kneequickie.com/kq/Himmaswa , which seemed to contain grammatical informations by you, besides " nung ", Interrogative pronouns can also be used as relativizers, so Himmaswa used relative pronouns?

      This is correct. Interrogative pronouns (with one exception) double as relative pronouns, but they are independent, in that they do not modify nouns but instead stand in place of the noun itself, much like English "what".
