"Waan haraadanahay = I am thirsty"
"Waan qoslayaa = I am laughing"
"Waan Fakarayaa = I am thinking"
"Waan fiirinaya = I am looking"
I say it like the following respectively:
"Waan f iikiroya"
"Waan f iirinoya"
I never heard of "haraad".
I think the site has issues with lowercase double "i" s together. Thus I put a space so that it shows clearly.

I'm trying to better understand the Somali Dialects, who can help me?
First, I'm unsure about if these are all the same, or how they are related: Xamar, Mogadishu, and Banadiri. Likewise, Koonfur, and Banadiri dialect(s).
Moving on, I heard that Northern Somali dominates the media: music industry, news, etc., and maybe even the education system as in it's a dialect chosen for teaching. While Southern Somali is the most commonly spoken of all the dialects, and the two dialects (Northern, and Southern) are the most common of all the dialects. Do you think that is the case?
Feel free to share any other relevant insights.
I came across this photo long ago. Though I think I also came across another link that said it's wrong:
Somali languages - Wikiwand
WWW.WIKIWAND.COM The Somali languages form a group that are part of the Afro-Asiatic language family. They are spoken as a mother... Thank you for your help in advance. My internet is having issues, so I might be unable to respond for a while.
i want to talk about a sensitive topic which is racism in the somali community which is diasppointing because the people who are discriminated because they a bit darker and kinky hair is really disappointing i mean like what the hell they fucking burned a human being alive because he was from a clan who have more of what they call african features. for those who dont know why he was burned alive is beacuase he married from a person from another clan and the people from that clan said how could a jareer an adoon marry a women from our clan. how could you burn someone alive, how could you burn a fellow somali alive even even if you dont consider him somali or some one equal to you how could you burn a muslim alive a muslim even if he was not muslim( which he wasnt he was muslim) how could you burn a human alive he had a mother a father people who loved him just like you. just so you know here is a picture of him. here is a link to great man talking about racism(
Somali men have become like female like. Now, hear me out before you call me a misogynist, sexist or anti women.
What I mean by this is lately i have been hear and see alot of Somali men on conference call/paltalk/qalka etc whatever they call it. They chit chat it these married and unmarried women for hours and hours. You might say what is wrong with that, they are having fun, it's there life etc. And you are correct. It's their life and there is nothing wrong with a person trying to killed bored. But if this becomes the norm of all Somali men on these types of lines/calls mostly talking about sexaul and other dirty talks and some politics etc than what will the future for Somalis look like?
Who are the future of Somalis and Somalia?
