"A river has nice water"

Translation:Mto una maji mazuri

April 11, 2017



Why wouldn't it be "Mto ana maji mazuri"? Does mto not use the third-person conjugation?


Mto is an M/Mi class noun. It takes u- in the singular, and i- in the plural. This is sadly not explained this early in the tree. List of noun class subject prefixes.
