Igboland Mix Communication
You should realized that not all the words included here are "pure" Oraifite (or Onitsha) words.
For example, oge is a more typically Oraifite word than mgbe for please "times of day" yet,
mgbe is widely known and used by many Onitsha and Oraifite speakers.
This is simply a reflection of the fact that speakers from all parts of Igboland mix and communicate with each other and naturally
influence each other. This dialect is a Compromise Igbo.
