Why is this not "these fruits are not eaten"?
That would be "Matunda haya hayajalika."
When stative verbs are in the present tense, the tend to be interpreted with the "potential" meaning, "be -able/-ible". To talk about the resulting state, you'll use the perfect tense.
Could you please explain this for dummies?
"potential" meaning (present -na- tense): "these fruits are edible"
resulting state (perfect -me- tense): "these fruits are eaten"
It s matter about they are NOT for eat ( for ex. poisoning) so, you should not eat them.
What is the function of "haya"?Is not "hayaliki" enough?
