Ngl, sharabaado sounds more like a somali word.

Siksaan/socksaan sounds like those derivative somali words i.e; cupboard for kabadhka 😅

I don’t think it’s more Arabic loans words tbh, I think it’s more original Somali words perhaps. Because Somali and Arabic are both Afro-asiatic so we’re bound to share words, no?

sharabaad isn't a Somali word to begin with

No way it's original Somali words. Arabs started wearing clothes and using basic things way before somalis.

Arabs started wearing basic clothes way before Somalis kullaha! Lmao I guess I didn’t know we were some nude savages while Arabs were some sophisticated first world civilization. Ha! Gimme a break and save that bs for someone who may be more inclined to believe it 😂

a lot of standard somali and northern dialect words are taken from arabic.

Let's be honest here, the Arabs have bordered advanced civilisations like the Persians and Romans. If you want to get on an Arab's nerves though say that their language has a lot of Persian loanwords (it's true btw).
That really gets them going:lolbron::pachah1:

they all ganged up on her :mjlol:

I think to get rid of the loan words we should merge af maay and maxaa together. replace the loan words with maay counterparts if they have it. if there isn't a counterpart in maay we make it up. all good languages make words up
 
Looking like our campaign of arabizing the somali language is in full motion boys :salute:
and tf is suksaan just say sharabaad like a normal somali :umwhat:


She should stop being friends with these two jahil girls and look for better ones, I got annoyed watching how disrespectful they were:yacadiim:

In Old Somali music and poetry the Somali language is nothing like the crap we call Somali language today. We literally have no need of using other peoples languages. I hope Schools in Somalia consider bringing back and teaching to our next generation. As for that girl I hope she grows a backbone and dumps those low IQ animals.
 
Sounds Japanese sxb, are you sure your last name isn't Toshiba?:shookgabre:
You're making me wish Japanese people were among the coastal settlers in Banaadir. Imagine "Gibil-Cad" by the name of Reer Takashi or some walking around with caramel skin, wavy hair, indhoyar, a short stature and katanas.

:kendrickcry:

Somali weebs would go sheegad on their qabiil.
