  • SARUFI: MNYAMBULIKO WA KUFANYIZA

    The Causative verbal extension adds the meaning of causation to the simple root.
    E.g.

               weza, be able to                     wezesha, enable
    pita, pass, go by                    pisha, let someone pass
    anguka, fall                            angusha, push down, throw down
    potea, get lost                        poteza, lose

    There are two ways of forming the Causative;
    *          Simple addition to the root:     wez-a -> wez+esh-a.
                Roots ending in a vowel, e.g. –pote-, add a ‘z’; pote-a -> pote+z-a.
    *          Sound change: pit-a -> pish-a.

    Monosyllabic verbs:
    nywa            –>            nywesha, give drink
    la                 –>            lisha, feed

    Causative verbs can also be formed from nouns, adjectives, or adverbs.
    elimu, n., education                elimisha, educate
    fupi, adj., short                        fupisha, shorten, abbreviate
    karibu, adv., near                   karibisha, welcome, invite
