“Africans are victims of their own creation and will always blame others for their stupidity. Many Africans love English, French and Arabic more than their mother tongue. They even go to universities to study them leaving their language to rot.”

Samuel Igbinosa Nomamiukor

Origin of the edoid group of languages are north west of benin city proper, from: archeology and language vol27, edoid languages show thier greatest diversity north west of benin city: joseph eboreime,oral traditions and pre history of edo speaking people of benin. Elugbe 1979 suggest that this region is the original edoid home land also see emerging towns in benin and esan nigeria AD 500-1500 by patrick darling, from north west of benin city edoid speakers would have spread southwards to the plains into the delta area. The linguistic evidence indicates an early dispersal from the north western forest margin which distributed a proto-edoid belt from the north to the extreme south and far west where they developed the dialectical features that distinguish the bini from esan(ishan) from southern dialects, from states and society: the emergence and developement of social hierachy and political centralization by john gledhill and barbara bender. And so in conclussion todays edo state is where edoids came from.

 The word ULABA is corrupted from the word ' Number '. I think the best word for it is Emwinaka vb' Edo.

Ọbota ọtẹn nọghaan, I just read the translation u post in "IRUẸMWI ẸDO N'AZẸ", and I say well-done. However, based on the rules guiding d formation of words (ikpẹmwẹ ne a kun) in Ẹdo, all nouns in Ẹdo (names: b it borrowed/adopted/currupted) must begins and ends with a vowel. (Omozuwa 2003). Therefore, nouns that are adopted/borrowed into Edo language undergo the process of either vowel elision, Or vowel insertion, Or consonant deletion/omission, or both. Eg: school = esuku, motor= imọto, machine =emasini, teacher = etisa, etc. Keep up ur good work

Uwagboe Ogieva:

 We just have to take it one way. that is take the Benin language and empire (OUR ALL EDO HERITAGE ) teach and encourage our children to learn it. The Original Benin language is not for the Edo south BUT OUR ALL EDO ANCESTRAL LANGUAGE.. Like the ijebu, awore, etc took the Yoruba (OYO) as there general Yoruba language. infact many scholars have argued that the FUTURE EDO NATION should mend all people to ONE EDO LANGUAGE.. STOP THE SELF HATE !!!thank you

"Language is capable of wearing several meanings in its message, mode, and receptacle. Do influences action, behavior, norms, values and other abstract yet perceptible roles of human beings in a society. Language brings mutual relationship and trust among different ethnic groups, community and trade" - Alex Igbineweka ( Guosa-West African Language Evolutionist. "Azekazudo of Benin Kingdom" http://www.dawodu.net/guosa1.htm

The Meaning of the word Amwen Omo

The value of the word Omo ,as in Omo N' Oba and Amwen Omo when a relitive,s wife is addressed is more than the meaning of a child. In my humble understanding Omo has come to carry a higher meaning than just a child from the time of Oba Ewuare N' Gidigan ( Ewuare the great ) As a mark of royal-like respect for all Benin married women they were to be addressed as Amwen Omo. From the time of Oba Ewuare the word OMO had started gaining the status of a single- personality - head that encompasses the entire Benin chiefs and subjects within the Benin kingdom.

The word Omo began to enjoy a euphemism for the Oba as the subjects could not ulter the names or title name of the Oba for reasons of respect. Amwen omo therefore, in theory, was the wife of every man and woman in her husband's family which was ultimately headed by the Oba. I hope no one will mis-interpret this again. Practically there was a red line between this wife and all , except the real husband
