Saminu Osemwingie Osasu Amaddin :

Let me commend Otedo.com as I have always done for the great work it is doing.But going through the Mathematics of Money in Edo,I didn't quite flow with the language definitions of some numerals and values. I'd like to suggest that it is better to use the present currency of Naira and Kobo translated version instead of translating the discarded Pounds, Shillings and Pence in teaching our younger and present generation of Edo language learners. Let's avoid confusing these money numerals which are not in sync with the normal Edo numerals as related to other objects or things. It must be noted too that holding on to the old language of counting money which is not known to the present generation will make the language cumbersome to understand. N20 (twenty naira) for example should not be 'ikpen igbe' but 'enaira ugie'. The words that can cause confusion to a learner here for example are words like 'Igbe' (10) and 'Ugie' (20). Forty (40) in Edo numeral is 'iyeva' (40),etc. which literally means 20 in 2 units. When you refer to N80 as 'ikpen iyeva', it sets the brain wondering which of the 'iyi eva' is real. Is it the one of 'igho' (money), ikpen or the one of objects as in 'alimo iyeva = 40 Oranges' or 'ikpen iyeva = 80 naira. Even if the argument is about keeping to the currency value, let's be reminded that before the coming of the European or English Pounds and Shillings, our people used or were using cowries - 'ikpigho', as a form of money in economic/social transactions. As time dictated this was done away with when a new system for transaction came. So also in the present dispensation, we use Naira and Kobo, this must be the language in our vocabulary. Naira is 'ENAIRA', while Kobo is 'IKOBO'. We cannot allow the past confuse our present and future. I would therefore like Itendo,Otu Edo Umagbae, Otedo.com, Edo language teachers as well as other concerned Edo citizens to look into this and other areas of our language that need reform in order to redress and increase our vocabulary, especially in this age of digitization and globalization.
