    Same I really was confused. My father kept using that word. He also kept saying Portierre.

    I was like fuck it this isn't a Somali woRd. I went on Google translate and it came up as goalkeeper in Italian.:chrisfreshhah: I knew it!

    Southern Somalis use a lot of Italian words when they watch football.

    Jalle( yellow card)
    Roso (red card)
    Rigore (penalty)
    Bortiyore (goalkeeper)
    Arbitore(Referee)


    These are more used by Northern Somalia:
    Callanwalle (linesman)
    Goalhaye (keeper)


    I always thought Suugo was Somali :gucciwhat:
    Suugo Science :gucciwhat:

    I thought it was a Cushitic Somali word.

    Italians did not introduce Pasta to Somalia. People were eating Pasta in Muqdisho when Ibn Batuta visited in the Middle Ages.

    Does any Somali who speaks xamar dialect know how to spell the word for this kind of headscarf?

    In waqooyi they say something like massar and in xamar we say faselletee (can't spell it). The xamar version comes from Italian

    Cape Guardafui (tip of the Horn) means Look and Escape in Italian (because it's so dangerous)

    The Cape Guardafui lighthouse has a fascist design :dead::
