Answer The process of aerial navigation involved taking repeated position readings using everything from maps to celestial observation. Celestial fixes were made using star charts based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). The Army Air Forces adopted it not only for navigation but also for timing its worl…dwide operations. World War II navigators lived by it. Their premission "time hacks" took on the solemnity of religious rituals, and GMT bound the faithful together like some secret password. Army Air Forces navigators from Italy to the Far East could tell you to the second what time it was in that little town near London.Since Greenwich, England is the site of the "zero meridian," they called GMT "Zero Time" or simply "Z- Time." In the phonetic alphabet that the flyers of the time used to make themselves understood on their radios, "Z" became "Zebra." When the alphabet was changed, the call sign became "Zulu." (MORE)

It also says that "this noun is of the umu / imi class, consequently the singular (tree) is rendered Umuthi and plural (trees) is Imithi.

The word is rendered as muti due to the historical effects of British Colonial spelling." (MORE)

What do the Swahili or Zulu lyrics in the background of can you feel the love tonight from the Lion king mean?
Here's an example: Can you feel the love tonight? (Lalela thuli) The peace the evening brings? (Lalela thuli) The world for once, in perfect harmony, with all its living things... (Lalela lelando/lelandu we) It would be the same with all languages of the song. Also, it's Zulu, not Swahili.

Depends on what you're looking for there. In some ways Shaka didn't create it, his mentor and friend Dingiswayo did. While Shaka was growing up and moving from pillar to post Dinigiswayo was king of the Mthethwa tribe, he bagan building a confederacy of all the neighbouring clans. Shaka when he reac…hed the age was introduced into his armies, with his military brain Shaka quickly climbed the ranks to be regimental commander and introduced his total war creed. When Shakas father, Senzengakhona, died in 1816 dinigiswayo dispatched Shaka to the zulu royal kraal (homestead) to claim the throne from his brother Sigujana. It's not entirely clear if Shaka killed Sigujana himself or had some one do it for him, but that's how he got the throne. As king of the Zulus Shaka remained in the service of Dingiswayo. However Dinigiwasyo was murdered during preparations for a campaign against the Ndwandwe tribe. It could be said that for Shaka to take control and win the war he had Dingiswayo killed, but more evidence points to Ndwandwe influence. Anyway with the death of Dingiswayo and Shaka being the regimental commander the power of the army was passed to him and as king of the Zulus he became the most powerful clan leader. Shaka continued the work Dinigiswayo started but the name Zulu and not Mthethwa became the name of the nation. (MORE)
