TUKI Kiingereza-Kiswahili: antelope n paa; palahala.

"An antelope is not fierce" should be accepted.

So, the spelling of roof and gazelle is the same (right?)

Yes, it's a homonym

Paa, not Swala?

It didn't accept strong for mkali although it should be correct to say: A gazelle is not strong

'ukali' is more of being ruthless or dangerous, but that doesn't necessarily translate to strength. Nyoka ni mkali lakini si mwenye nguvu/si imara
