It is fun to learn kiswahili. MTU is a person. Mnyama is an animal. The plural is as follows: Mtu-watu Mnyama-wanyama. Notice the 'm' at the beginning of the singular and 'ea' of the plural. Now there are people of a certain trade. Mkulima is a farmer. Mhunzi is a mason Mchoraji is an artist who draws. It I'd easy to know the plural. Just remove the 'm' and replace with a 'wa' EXCEPTIONS Dereva is a driver and plural is madereva. Mwizi is a thief and plural is wezi. Kinyozi is a barber and plural is vinyozi. Get tuned for more.
