Loanwords in Dinka

Dear Muonyjang,

This may be one of the largest English-Dinka translation ever undertaken in the Dinka language. Please go through it and take note of the loanwords from English. It is uncertain however if loanwords from other languages, frequently used in verbal communication, are actually part of the official Dinka language.

For example, what is Research in Dinka? Is it Rïsäc/Rïthäc?

 

I will get in more loanable words after getting your responses.

Thanks,

Pioocku Thuongjang.
