My kisuaheli dictionary translates it as "pullover"....so we have 3 very very different things. 1) t-shirt 2) vest 3) pullover Who really knows the truth?

is fulana t-shirt and vest?

I think it's "vest" in the British sense. Australian English: "singlet"
American English: "undershirt", "tank top"

When I translate 'fulana yake' as 'his t-shirt' it's marked as an error...=/

It now says "his t shirt" with a space :-/

So on one question (Fulana) I chose "vest" to test the suggestions which were also t-shirt and undershirt. It was considered wrong. Now this one accepts it.

Why is "his t-shirts are dirty" not correct?
