Other Shona Language Resources
Navigating through these pages should have shown you that this is not a Shona tutorial. The intent was to produce a good reference for the Shona language as spoken in Zimbabwe. Material presented here is not inclusive nor have I attempted to cover Shona grammar.

Listed below are other sites that may provide additionnal information.

Submitting Shona Words
Help increase the Shona word list in the database for these Shona Language pages by submitting additional words I omitted and their meanings. Omissions may include instances where I did not cover all possible meanings of a word. In that case, treat the word as a new word and include all possible meanings for the word in question. Basic guide to submitting omitted words is on the Add Words page.
