EFIWE ARTICLES: 5 Common Words Used By Nigerians But It Doesn't Exist | No.3 Is So Surprising


While non-Nigerians may doubt my assertion, till they manage to invent a popular version of English like we did (Pidgin English), they can keep on doubting.

Although there are many awesome things Nigerians do, we do have some face palm moments. Don’t laugh too hard at the five words Nigerians use that doesn’t exist in the English dictionary:

*.1. Installmentally
This doesn’t exist anywhere else except only in Nigeria. If you doubt this, just search”Installmentally” on google and watch only Nigerian sites pop up.

*.2. Night-Vigil
This is another one I don’t understand. Does anyone ever hold a vigil during the day?

*.3. Disvirgin
How hard is it to say deflowered? It must be extremely difficult because even health professionals and newsmen use this absurd word that doesn’t exist.

*.4. Wake Keeping (Wake keep)
Nigerians have not only made the old European custom of watching over a corpse till it’s buried
(called a wake) theirs, they have actually renamed it. Please, there is no such phrase as “wake keep” or even “wake keeping”.

*.5. Cunny
This is not meant as a euphemism for the female body part. When Nigerians say this word, they mean “cunning”. How is that for a giant leap forward?
