"Children be happy!"
What exactly is the verb of ''to be happy''? Kufurahi? kufuraha? kuwa furaha? I see different forms of happy and I am confused.
The two main words here are:
kufurahi (verb) "to become happy"
furaha (noun) "happiness"
Because kufurahi is one of these verbs of "becoming", i.e. a change of state, to talk about the static state, you use the perfect:
mefurahi. = I am happy. = I have become happy.
You can also use the noun to get the same meaning. Just use it with the equivalent of "have". To have happiness = to be happy.
Nina furaha = I am happy. = I have happiness.
watu wenye furaha = happy people = people with happiness
watu waliofurahi = happy people = people who became happy
tembea kwa furaha = walk happily = walk with happiness
