    If you understand Yoruba very well, its called ORO ati IDAKEJI

    So mention a Yoruba word, bracket the English translation and the person next will answer with Yoruba word and bracket what it means in English.

    English in bracket so those who doesnt understand Yoruba well, wont be asking what is that? And they can learn aswell.

    Oya!

    aha,........ hubs, i thot you said idakeji,as in opposite of the words, e.g beauty is ugly, how come the opposite of creditor is black?

    do you actually mean words and their translation, or word and their opposites?
