Mrefu (singular), inflected form of -refu.
From Wiktionary: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/refu
I honestly thought it came from Arabic's رَفَعَ. Thank you for your hardwork, helping us learners.
Safi rafiki! I would like to learn more about Arabic, and perhaps we can also see more African languages here in the future. =)
How differs mrefu from mkubwa?
tall vs big/elder(sibling)/large etc.. oh but ndefu means long I think - very similar
Why can i not say " she is tall"
Why is it just He is tall?
