Will do! Thank you everyone who helped make this course! I love being able to learn a new language! :D And what does "mbassa" mean? Or is that Emilian's surname?
Names have incredible cultural significance, and in many languages names have significant grammatical impact. Also, learning the meaning of names teaches you new vocabulary.
You would learn more about Swahili by memorizing a list of Swahili names rather than using your time to worry about whether learning names matters.
I hopped here after I finished a session in Irish lesson...I need to readjust reading the Swahili because of the letter 'm', haha.
/ɛmi'lian ni m̩'keɲa/
Correct me if I'm wrong, since there's no audio for this sentence as of now and IPA will have to do.
But what is plular form of the Emilian, Rehema and Juma names? I assume that plural of the name "Juma" is "Majuma" becose the word "juma" is 5-6 class and its plural form is "majuma". But how about "Emilian" and "Rehema"?
