KISWAHILI NOTES FOR ORDINARY LEVEL

Swahili, also known by its native name Kiswahili, is the native language of the Swahili people, who are found primarily in Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique (along the East African coast and adjacent litoral islands). Although linguistically categorised as a Bantu language, Swahili developed historically by borrowing a number of words from foreign languages, particularly Arabic, but also words from Portuguese, English and German. Around forty percent of the Swahili vocabulary consists of Arabic loanwords, including the name of the language (سَوَاحِلي sawāḥilī, a plural adjectival form of an Arabic word meaning ‘of the coast’)




Swahili (or Kiswahili) is a musical language and quite easy to learn, whose origins date back more than 1,000 years, and it is spoken along the eastern coast of Africa. It developed when African-Bantu and Arab-Persian elements came into contact, spreading progressively throughout the continent as a trade language along the routes travelled by caravans that departed from the ports of Zanzibar, Bagamoyo and Kilwa, heading into the heart of Africa in search of gold, ivory and slaves.

The name Swahili derives from the Arabic word “sahel”, which means “coast”, precisely because the language and culture produced were found in the early settlements established by Arab and Shirazi traders along the shores of the Indian Ocean.




Initially written in Arabic characters, when Christian missionaries arrived they transliterated it, introducing the use of the Latin alphabet. Over the centuries it has been enriched by Portuguese, German and, above all, English contributions
