what does the word "qaali" mean?

Postby asiya123 » Fri Oct 07, 2016 8:42 pm

Hi my fellow somalis! I wanted to know the meaning of the word "qaali". I know that the literal meaning is "expensive". But what does it mean to say "that girl is qaali"? Specifically, in the context of when a boy calls a girl "qaali"?

Qaali means precious/ dear whether said by a girl or a boy.

Quruxay qaali baad tahay! That is how a reer Gaalkacyood would use the word in a sentence.
