What you should not type in
This should be obvious, but sometimes it seems it's not: If you want the Zulu word for music, don't type The Zulu word for music. You'll get more noise than actual music. Just type music. Surely you don't talk to a printed dictionary, do you? And this is not Wolfram Alpha.

The result set contains one paragraph per dictionary entry matching your query. If an entry can take different parts of speech, each part of speech is listed separately.
Each paragraph begins with the keyword followed by its part of speech. Zulu entries then show the noun classes, the stem in parantheses, and the optional phonetic spelling.
Stems are denoted by a leading dash (-). Nouns appear as "singular/plural" if both forms exist, otherwise only one form is given. The English plural is only shown if it is irregular. For Zulu verbs the verb stem is given.
English adjectives may translate to Zulu adjectives (very few), relatives or verbs each of which have their own sets of concords. Adjectives are marked "[adj.]" after the translation, relatives are marked "[rel.]" and verbs are marked "[v.]".
