Somali News Vocabulary

 

Welcome to an other learn Somali post. Today we will focus on Somali Language News Vocabulary. These Somali vocabulary will help you if you are learning Somali and you want to practice reading the news in Somali. We made the Somali language News vocabulary so random that we did not even categorize the terms. Since many of the media agencies broadcast negative news (in my opinion) the list vocabularies has words about war, fighting and so on.  In the example columns for both the Somali  and the English, Some of the sentences are not complete sentence. They are partial sentence but still they make sense as these words come in full sentence when reading the news.
