<umuzamu>, /umuzaâmu/ (pl. aba-)
'watchman, guard; goalkeeper'
NB: Rwanda's national language has both tone and vowel length, features not marked in the standard orthography. I am following the trend that I have seen and read about where--to go into X-Sampa for a moment--/a/ = [a_L], /aa/ = [a:_L], /aâ/ = [a:_R], /â/ = [a_H], and /âa/ = [a:_F] (/ââ/ would be [a:_H], but it does not occur).
