So I am nearly finished helping with our new siSwati language manual. I am spending a lot of time looking up words in our handy siSwati>English (and slightly less handy) English>siSwati dictionary. It is actually entertaining to read the siSwati to English section as it seems to contain a fairly large and varied selection of words (especially compared to the English to siSwati section). For instance, I ran across:
“-yembeti: Aqueous humor (a transparent fluid occupying the space between the crystalline lens and the cornea of the eye)”
*sidenote: vitreous humor, the part that is probably more noticeable, was not found
Not as helpful as if numerals were included (in the English>siSwati section) but it was funny for a bit. I still don’t know how to count in siSwati.
