How to give a simple statement: waa + noun

 

Waa buug             it is a book

Waa shimbir          it is a bird

Waa nin               it is a man

Waa naag            it is a woman

 

You can add an adjective (which comes after the noun)

 

Waa buug weyn      it is a large book

Waa shimbir quruxsan   It is a beautiful bird

Waa nin xoog leh     it is a strong man

Waa naag dhuuban  it is a thin woman

 

Easy, don't you think?

 

Can anyone translate this for me, please?

 

Ugu horayntii madaxweynaha Jamhuuriyada Federalka Soomaaliya Prof. Xassan Sheekh Maxamuud ayaa tacsi tiiraanyo leh u diray ehelkii iyo qabaarbadii uu ka geeriyooday Xildhibaan Mustafe oo kooxo gacan ku dhiiglayaal ah ku dileen magaalada Muqdisho.

 

 

Does anyone know the english word for musaabad (feminine)?

...  ma aha   it is not ...

 

 

buug ma aha                            it is not a book

buug weyn ma aha                    it is not a large book

shimbir ma aha                         it is not a bird 

nin ma aha                              it is not a man

naag ma aha                           it is not a woman

 

 

Try these:

 

shimbir ma aha, waa fiidmeer        it is not a bird, it is a bat

nin ma aha, waa geed                 it is not a man, it is a tree

guri ma aha, waa warshad           it is not a houe, it is a factory
