In English, numbers are not supposed to have an "and" in them. It may be a common grammatical error, but it is an error. I had a teacher who was very strict about this particular error when I was younger.
maybe in america... its different in the uk sa australia
It is not an error, but many people (including teachers) think it is.
What? This is news to me
It says that "2005" is wrong, and it should be "2 thousand 5".
PSA: as a general rule for the course, for English>Swahili translation, numerals are not accepted, because the lesson is Numbers and that would be pointless. Numerals are fine vice versa
If -me- is for past tense, why id -li- used in alizaliwa?
As I understand it -li- is past, -me- is perfect.
alizaliwa = was born, amezaliwa = has been born
"Rashidi was born in the year two thousand five" is also rejected.
please accept numbers
Use the word 'and' in numbers where you would put a period between whole numbers and fractions.
