This Web site is a dictionary of some Swahili words used in the English language, each with a literal or Swahili meaning, English definition and sometimes actual sample sentence(s) from literature and the Internet.
If you ever see the term Kiswahili, that is not another language; it is simply the Swahili word for Swahili.
Of course there are not as many Swahili loanwords in English as there are, for example, German loanwords.
I have begun with the most well-known Swahili word: "safari".

sifuri (W3)

Von einem Besucher erhielt ich den folgenden Hinweis:

Ist Ihnen schon mal aufgefallen, dass das Wort "sifuri" (Kisuaheli für: "null") fast genauso klingt wie "sifir"?
Das sollte aber bei der "arabischen Vergangenheit" der Einwohner kein Wunder sein, denn auch die "Ziffer" kommt ja aus dem Arabischen. (siehe auch: Stichwort "Ziffer")
