Kamusi Cha Kiswahili: Swahili Dictionary
This concise dictionary was compiled, only as a small dictionary to go with the small grammar “Kiswahili in America.” Prepared for Americans in America already this Swahili African language is widely accepted and used throughout America. People are naming their children with Swahili names. There’s a church in Los Angeles, California named “UHURU” a Swahili word for freedom Independence. A lot of businesses have Swahili names. But most of the books on Swahili are written for Americans going to Africa. Almost none are written for Americans to speak and use in America, with American slang, such as “Right On!” “Easy Brother”, “Later “, etc [‘Hakika!-Right On!]-[Rahisi, NDUGU’-Easy, brother] and [‘CHELEWA’-‘:Later’].
People can call each other up on the phone and say-HABARI GANI? (What’s Happening?) and the other can say-HABARI NJEMA! (I am fine!). Then finish talking is English. That can, be the beginning of using the language or you can say Ninakwenda Kazi! (I am going to work), or ninkwenda shule! (I am going to school). Each one teach one! Eventually Afro-American will recover some of their Root African Language like the Italian, Spanish, Japanese, etc. And create a new dialect of the language-Shahili.
