Can anyone explain to me the order of words in a Swahili sentence? I tend to get very confused what word goes where when translate from English to Swahili.
In a sentence it is usually Subject - Verb - Object. For a subject or object, the order is Noun - Personal possessive - Adjective(s) - Quantity - Demonstrative - Possessive.
