"I am going to the forests"

Translation:Ninaenda misituni

March 7, 2017



Can somebody explain the meaning of the -ni suffix, please? Does it simply indicate the locative form of a noun? I have also heard it differentiating between house (nyumba) and home (nyumbani), which would be slightly different though... But maybe I just remember that wrong?


Yes, you're correct. -ni is the locative suffix and is added to nouns like you explained it.


Thanks! So does that mean that "home" is every house that you are "located" at? That would be kinda beautiful...


I guess! Home is where the heart is =)
