Priority List 201 - 300

Archived Page

This is a page from the Kamusi archives. The information below may be out of date, and the links may no longer be valid. Please visit for current information. If you know of links or information on this page that can be updated, please let us know.

This is a list of the next pending entries on our English-derived priority word list. We need help producing good English definitions for the major senses of each of these terms, so that editors can then start producing parallel entries in other Kamusi languages.

Can you help? You might need to guess about which Swahili term is the correct match for your English definition - that's okay, if you contribute a good English entry, we'll match it correctly to the Swahili side. Alternately, you might need to add a new English entry to the dictionary. Please contact us if you need help getting started as an editor - many hands make light work, so we really appreciate your jumping in!

We've prepared several how-to pages to walk you through the editing process. If there is anything that is not clear, please let us know, so we can write more help documentation for everyone.

Of course, some of these terms might require multiple entries, if the term has more than one important sense.

Note also that the parts of speech listed here are not definitive - you might find that a term needs entries for multiple parts of speech. Please use your own judgement, keeping in mind that the end goal is a dictionary that will be both comprehensive and comprehensible.

We will try to keep this page up to date, so that you will keep finding fresh entries to work on, and completed entries will be taken off the list.

Our biggest struggle is keeping Kamusi online and keeping it free. We cannot charge money for our services because that would block access to the very people we most want to benefit, the students and speakers of languages around the world that are almost always excluded from information technology. So, we ask, request, beseech, beg you, to please support our work by donating as generously as you can to help build and maintain this unique public resource.
