Kutamie funguo kufunga mlango kwa fungo
So determined this week to master some words that have been tripping me up lately!
Funga: Close, lock
Fungu: Open, unlock
And just for fun, Fungo: Civet
A co-worker was closing a window and asked me if I was ok with it. I think I flip-flopped between funga and fungu half a dozen times trying to remember which one is the right word. She had a good laugh out of it.
I can definitely sympathize better now with English learners confronting: where, were, we`re, and wore; you’re, your; there, their, they’re!
