Mlango haufungiki

In stative verbs: shouldn't this be Mlango haufunguki? Also, I think that's what the audio says.

depends on your meaning:

  • Mlango haufunguki - you can't open the door ('kufungua' - to open; 'funguka' - become open/"openable")
  • Mlango haufungiki - you can't close the door ('funga' - to close; 'fungika' - become closed/"closable")


OK, thanks. I now saw that the translation is correct (the door cannot be closed), but the audio is not: as already reported by njeri-1331 in davidvdb's thread on the new audio.
