Okay, I get cuncun(itchy) and doondoon(I prefer to say baadidoon tbh), but I don't get the rest. In what context do you use these:
Joogjoog, kaalkaalay and yaryaro. I'm really curious.:geek:

Yaryaro: I would rather say yaryaraysi or yaryar.
I think heard some people use it as a naanays, yaryare(male) or yaryaro(female)...Is that what you were going for?

Joogjoog: :icon lol: I think it's one of those things people say without thinking, "Kaalay meelahan ii joogjoog", "maxaad la taagtaagantahay" etc.

Kaalkaalay: What's a kaalkaal? Do you mean kalkaal as in help?

I thought your Somali was good, waa ku sidee @kickz is correcting you? Sxb, before @A_A finds more mistakes with your Somali, I’m hooking you up with my Oromo friend who speaks flawless Somali to tutor you.
