Why does Swahili have such delightful names for its foods?
Subject and object pronouns can optionally be included in order to emphasise that information, such as when contrasting between different people.
Because "We" is "Sisi". Though this could be loosely translated as "We are eating green peppers".
What is "hoho"?
Together, it just means "sweet pepper", like a bell pepper. Doesn't have to be green.
Yeah, my dictionary says "red peppers"
One dictionary said pepper, so maybe "pilipili hoho" is one word?? I honestly don't know. This language needs more mods.
It is two words. I never heard hoho used alone, so it may be used as a shorthand, but properly it should be pilipili hoho.
yes, "pilipili hoho" is a word for peppers.
