Abstract: Swahili forms new verbs from the base forms of verbs by attaching suffixes to the verb. Typical extended verb forms include applicative, causative, stative, reciprocal, and combintions of these. English does not use extended verbs, and it forms corresponding meanings using auxiliary verbs. Because word to word translation is not possible, we must find other solutions. The report discusses this problem and suggests alternative solutions.
