The way you access our dictionary content is changing.

As part of the evolution of the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) programme, we are now focussing on making our data available for digital applications, which enables a greater reach in delivering and embedding our language data in the daily lives of people and providing more immediate access and better representation for them and their language.

Because of this, we have made the decision to close our dictionary websites.
Our Oxford Northern Sotho living dictionary site closed on 31st March 2020, and this forum closed with it.

We would like to warmly thank everyone for your participation and support throughout these years – we hope that this forum, and the dictionary site, have been useful
You were instrumental in making the Oxford Global Languages initiative a success!

Ditšhišinyo - kgatelopele ka Sesotho sa Leboa

ngwadilwe November 2017 go Kakaretšo

Ngwanabo rena Matlakala,

O dira mošomo o mobotse.

Ke nnete gore mekgwa le polelo ya gaborena e mo kotsing ya go timelela. Nna ke šišinya gore, godimo ga go babalela mantšu a Sesotho sa Leboa ka kakaretšo, ga re bopeng dithuto bjalo ka “dipalo” (math), “Mediro ya hlago” (physical science), “Bo-Phedi” (biology), ”Bo-Ipopi”(Chemistry), “Bo-Agi” (Engineering), “Temo” (Agriculture), bjalo-bjalo, ka Sesotho sa Leboa.
Ka mahlatse, ke kgonne go fihlela bongaka (PhD) bja “Tšeo di ipopago” (Chemistry). Ke kgona go bona gore tsebo e tlišwa ke eng mo setšhabeng. E tlišwa ke go amogela re le setšhaba (e sego motho o tee), gomme ra khuparela seo re se amogetšego e le lehumo (la setšhaba) gore bana ba rena ba se ke ba thoma fase. Ke na le tshepo yeo e tiilego gore maloko a setšhaba sa gešu sa Leboa a na le tsebo yeo re e hlokago gore re hlame dithuto tše ka leleme la gešu la Sesotho sa Leboa. E sego fela go ruta bana ba banyane, eupša batho ka moka, le dithuto tša godimo tša dinyakišišo (research). Ga re ruteng mešomo ya diatla e bjalo ka "Bobetli" (Capentry), "Boapei"(Culinery), "Boroki" (Fashion design), le tše dingwe. Ka go dira bjalo, re tla thiba ntho e se dutle madi, re kgone go alafa kgobadi.

Ditlhaloso

  • Ke tšwa go nyakišiša ka ga mathomo a "Mathematics" mo inthaneteng, le bašoming-mommgo le nna ba lefapha la dipalo. Bjale ke šišinya mantšu a a latelago (ao a lego ka mašakaneng):

    1. Mathematics (Bo-Ithuti) = Tšhomišo ya kgopolo; Learning. Originated from the Greek word "manthenein"
    2. Arithmetic (Dipalo) = Go bala bontšhi; Counting. From the Greek word "Arithmos"
    3. Algebra (Kgomantšho) = Go kgomantšha goba go tsošološa; Reunite or restore. From the Arabic word "Al-jabr"
    4. Trigonometry (Thetološo) = kamano ya mahlakore le dikhona ge dilo di retologa. From the Latin word "trigonometria"
    5. Geometry (Bo-Meti) = Go tšea bogolo “bja lefase”. From the Greek word "ge-metria"
    6. Calculus (Bo-Badi) = Phetana ya go bala; small counting bead. From the Latin word "calculus"
    7. Calculator (Sebadi) = Sešomišwa seo se balago / calculating tool. From the word "abaq" in Semitic languages. It is also commonly known as “abacus”.
    8. Statistics (Dipalopalo) = hlahlobo ya "palo le palo" tše dintši; large quantity of counts or measured data. From the German word "statistisch"

    Go iteka ga se go wela!

  • Diphošollo:
    Algebra (Tsošološo) = go kgomantša le go tsošološa dipalo; reconstructing sums and products
    Calculus (sekgetlwana) = Bo-Badi ka dikgetlo; caculating with pieces and segments.
    Differentiation (goKgetlola) = go kgetlola-kgetlola palo e kgolo
    Integration (goKgomantšha) = go kgomantša dikgetlo tša palo e kgolo

    A re yeng, re tla bona ge koša e ka fihla gabomonna!

  • Ke rata go lebiša ditebogo go wena le go go rweša diala ka tlhompho yeo o re laeditšego yona RaLesego ka go re etela mo lekgotleng la dipoledišano. Taba yeo o e tšweleditšego fa e bose bjalo ka todi ya nose efela e nyaka gore re e abalane le setšhaba sa gešo. Ka kgopelo hle, tsenya mantšu ao ka go pukuntšu ya rena gore a kgone go latela tshepedišo ka moka ya gore lereo le amogelwe setšhabeng. Ke phoša ke realo!

Tsena goba Ngwadiša gore o hlalose.
