Vrei sa inveti limba swahili, dar ce cunosti despre limba si cultura swahili?

Limba swahili (Kiswahili) este o limbă aglutinantă vorbită adesea în Africa de Est de populația bantu. Această limbă este vorbită într-o zonă extinsă, din sudul Somaliei până în nordul Mozambicului și în toată Kenya. Sunt aproximativ cinci milioane de vorbitori nativi și cincizeci de milioane de vorbitori ca a doua limbă.

Limba swahili a început să fie vorbită în Zanzibar, o insulă în Tanzania. Swahili este limbă oficială în Tanzania și Kenya, fiind însă influențată de multe alte limbi, precum limba arabă.

The Swahili language (Arabic: سواحلي), or Kiswahili, is a Bantu language spoken by various ethnic groups that inhabit several large stretches of the Mozambique Channel coastline from northern Kenya to northern Mozambique. Closely related languages, sometimes considered dialects, are spoken in the Comoros Islands and Somalia.

Although only five million or so people speak Swahili as their mother tongue, it is used as a lingua franca in much of East Africa, and the total number of speakers exceeds 140 million. Swahili serves as a national, or official language, of four nations: Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Some Swahili vocabulary is derived from Arabic through more than twelve centuries of contact with Arabic-speaking inhabitants of the coast of southeastern Africa. It has also incorporated Persian, German, Portuguese, English, and French words into its vocabulary through contact with empire builders, traders, and slavers during the past five centuries.

Swahili is traditionally regarded as being the language of Arab-ruled Zanzibar, spread along the coast by the Arab trade in various goods. Whether it was first spoken by natives of the mainland opposite Zanzibar who were brought to Zanzibar as slaves, or whether Zanzibar had a native black population, is uncertain.

In post-colonial leftist/African-nationalist scholarship, this history is increasingly reinterpreted as a native black Swahili ethnic group, which already lived along a large area of the coast, engaging in its own maritime trade prior to taking up willing commerce with the Arabs.

Kiswahili is the Swahili word for the language, and this is also sometimes used in English. The name Kiswahili comes from the plural sawāḥil (سواحل) of the Arabic word sāḥil (ساحل), meaning "boundary" or "coast", used as an adjective meaning "coastal dwellers". With the prefix ki-, it means "coastal language", ki- being a prefix attached to nouns of the noun class that includes languages. (wikipedia)
