How come pillow and river is the same word? I don't get it.

Most (all?) languages have homonyms. Why can "park" be both a place with trees and what you do with your car? Why can a "bank" be the side of a river and where you put your money? :)

You mean you don't keep your money at a pillowbank?

The hint isn't correct. Mto is pillow and mtoo is river. According to my husband, mother tongue swahili.

'mto' is both river and pillow. 'Mtoo' does not exist, as far as I know

Could be a regional dialect

According to google translate...

Mtoo = style.

pillow as well as river = Mto
