Chichewa word of the day: Chabwino
The most spoken word in the world [citation required]. Surprisingly, it’s not used all that much here. I guess it’s partly because Chichewa is very conversational. So simple, short acknowledgements like …okay! or questions like …okay? just isn’t appropriate or common.
However, I did learn that Malawians do say “Hi”, instead of the usual “How are you?” (Muli bwanji), afterall. Thanks to my trip last weekend to Zomba, where they used “Hi” a lot more than in Lilongwe.
Second Chichewa word of the day: Bo! or Bo bo!
PS. Further to the previous Chichewa WOTD post for football, I was just at the bank and was shocked to see rugby on the TV instead of football!
