    The Swahili spellings of these imported words are determined by the Swahili perception of the English pronunciation, not by English orthography, with extensions to accommodate the Swahili rule of ending all words with vowels; thus, molecule is pronounced as “molekiuli,” oxygen as “oksejeni” or “okisijeni,” and virus as “virusi.”
