"Drink clean and safe water"
Translation:Kunyweni maji safi na salama
Is there a way to indicate if it is singular or plural in the English sentence? Otherwise, how do we know which word to use when we translate - kunywa or kunyweni.
I simply cannot cope with this. It is not clear whether it is singular or plural and I find it discouraging
I simply cannot know when to say Y'all drink or just drink. It is not clear and I find it a great problem
Wonderful suggestion, Ivoryblossum. A simple (s) or (pl) would solve most of these problems.
There is no indication of plurality in the english. If only plural is allowed, then must indicate in the English
To avoid using (sing.) and (pl.) in the English sentences, and to avoid so-called southern English -- "Y'all drink clean water!", the command could be preceded by a plural word, e.g., "Students, drink clean and safe water!" Then it is clear the plural imperative is needed in this sentence.
