A simple entry in the Kabwa dictionary consists of a headword, which is a link, followed by the abbreviation for the part of speech. Then the translations are given next (first in Swahili, then in English). These may be followed by example sentences and links to related entries.
A more complex entry may have related meanings listed after each number.
