A friend of mine from Serbia once tried to replicate the sound of Swahili when he listened to two girls from Kenya speaking, and managed to say "Wewe kuku nono". They were furious.
That's too funny!
Still makes me laugh 5 months later haha
sounds like the name of a "heavy metal" band :)
I noticed "kuku" on the hints is listed as "chicken" and "chickens" which would make "kuku" n-class. I verified as much with a dictionary.
Wouldn't that make the correct phrase: "kuku nzito"?
It's n-class animate, which makes it decline as n-class nouns, but since it's animate, it takes m/wa-class concord, with some small modifications. Don't remember which, but "Kuku mzito" is correct, when you are talking about a live chicken.
Maybe nzito would be fit for a dead chicken? Compare mnyama (animal) or nyama (meat). Swahili is fun, but this makes me feel a bit morbid ...
Yeah, that should work.
