this translation is wrong because in english you need to give the insect an article; thus, it should be: "a" dirty insect.
True, but rather post it in "reports"; that way the staff will see it!
you're right, I have since started doing that. thanks!
a fly is a dirty insect is the proper way to translate this sentence.
"A fly is a dirty insect" should be the correct English. Reported again on 2017-05-29
Is there a differende betwen a singular and plural "fly" in swahili or is it both just inzi?
The singular and plural are the same:
'inzi (n class, plural inzi)'
However, "mdudu mchafu" is definitely singular, so in this sentence it is "the fly" or "a fly".
