Can't it also be "starting" instead of igniting because people "start" fires?
Hmm, I'd also like to know if "making" could be used here. They both seem like correct options to me.
I thought m- and wa- were used for adjectives relating to people and animals? Unless fire is considered an "animate" object due to its nature?
No, it's M/Mi class, so the concord is m- for adjective stems starting with a consonant.
Shouldn't it be 'you are lighting a big fire!' Cause 'unawasha' is present continuous. If it was 'you light a big fire!' It would be 'washa moto kubwa!' Or maybe 'uwashe moto kubwa' if it is in future
So annoying! I wrote 'You light a big fire' and it autocorrected to 'You light a big fore' which meant I got it wrong - isn't it mean to say 'typo' if it's just one thing wrong?
for Swahili at least, they have to be typed in, so a lot of them aren't flagged as typos
