      Hi Jacob,
      Tree = Muti
      Trees = Miti
      Firewood = Nkuni
      Tree stump = Cishiki

    ROAST IS NOT SALULA. IT’S KANGA OR OCHA.

      Ba Peter,

      I think this is an example of words that can mean different things. Roasting peanuts, roasting meat over an open fire, frying chicken in cooking oil, burning grass, etc. will all be covered by these words.
      Which ones would you use?

    The word vomit can also mean amalushi

    I would like to add on to the word agree. It may have the meaning of umfwaneni (as in contract).
