Igbo Language
IGBO (Igbo: _Ásụ̀sụ̀ Ị̀gbò_; Igbo ( listen ); English: /ˈɪɡboʊ/ ; ), is the principal native language of the Igbo people , an ethnic group of southeastern Nigeria . The language has approximately 24 million speakers, who live mostly in Nigeria and are primarily of Igbo descent. Igbo is written in the Latin script , which was introduced by British colonialists . Igbo has over 20 dialects, though dialect levelling appears to be occurring. A standard literary language was developed in 1972 based on the Owerri (Isuama) and Umuahia (such as Ohuhu) dialects, though it omits the nasalization and aspiration of those varieties. Related Igboid languages such as Ika , Ikwerre and Ogba are sometimes considered dialects of Igbo; the most divergent of these is Ekpeye . Igbo is also a recognised minority language of Equatorial Guinea
