1) Translator's note: "We do not have a phrase for 'Where is my room?' as when our language was being developed thousands of years ago, most indigenous people did not have dwellings that had rooms. It was usually a one room shelter. So we do not have a word for 'Room'."

2) Hausa taawa uu vawe mayoa?

3) Haksa katek uu sene'eka?
Translator's note: "We do not have a word for 'Bar', but sene'eka is a creek where the water runs, so we use 'Sene'eka' to indicate a place where the water is available."

4) katte net tahtahte
