What is the difference in Swahili between "a" and "the", and should both be accepted as the correct answer?
There isn't one, and yes.
Thank you :-)
Does this really mean the tree had been cut down?
i am afraid yes, they really should have spared it
Haha I can't remember why I phrased the question like that!...maybe the original translation was just 'the tree had been cut' and I was questioning that. But yes, poor tree :-/
I noticed in conversations this being used:mfano:Nilikuwa ninasoma. Like I was studying but for a longer time. Is it correct?
Why is "u" used as the pronoun here? Does it imply that you cut down the tree, or is u a pronoun for m/mi nouns?
u is the singular pronoun for m/mi nouns
