is a conjugation that means 'completely finish doing'. For example,
わりぬ means 'completely end'.
The conjugation often carries a tinge of regret, and has a somewhat archaic sound. It is most commonly found in poems and novels. The more modern equivalent might be something like
わってしまう.
Note: in Japanese, the suffix ぬ is technically classed as a
じょどうし
助動詞
( auxiliary verb).
