I believe the word for tomato is misspelled on the true-false test.

Hi Janine,

The fruit cherry can be named as either cheri by means of Swahili-lizing the English name (which is allowed in some cases) or mzabibu by means of using a Swahili name of its closest fruit in terms of appearance and taste. Feel free to ask us any question and we will be glad to answer.

Joanne,


Naming fruits in swahili is sometimes tricky that is why we sometimes borrow their English names or use names of fruits that look like them, which has been the case here. I suspect naming of fruits is still under research.

Jambo,


I have just watched the video of this lesson and was wondering if you could please confirm a couple of things for me? The video has cherry as cheri but the notes say it is mzabibu, which one is correct? It also has strawberry as fuu but the notes say stroberi. I thought fuu was raspberry. Could you please confirm which one is correct? One last one, is tomato nyaya or nyanya, or can it be both?


Asante sana

Joanne
