the reference to dowery size for out of village marriage is illogical, i.e., "Marriages are completed by the payment of a bridal dowry, which increases in size if the bride is from another village (so as to make up for that village's loss of her children)" As you see, nonsensical. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sammisam1 (talkcontribs) 21:19, 30 November 2012 (UTC)


I'd really like to take out the linguistic material and put it on a page dedicated to the Ijoid languages (note that I refer to languages in the plural, as there is no single Ijaw language), as the complex linguistic situation with the Ijaw really deserves dedicated treatment. I'm currently unsure as to whether or not to create very brief dedicated entries for Kalabari, Izon and the other languages, or whether it would be better to simply redirect all queries for the separate languages to the proposed "Ijaw languages" entry.

Fully agree, it's a pity that you're not here anymore. It will surely be fixed. — mark 08:26, 31 May 2005 (UTC)

I am making several changes to this article. First of all Kalabari is an "Eastern" Ijaw language. But no one ever uses the term "Eastern Ijaw", they simply use the term Kalabari. Western Ijaw languages include Nembe, Kolokuma and what is nominally termed as Izon. These languages bare a close resemblance to one another and the speakers generally understand one another. There are other Ijaw dialects that are on the periphery of the Niger-Delta, but I am not an expert on these languages. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.234.8.254 (talk • contribs) .

It's a good idea to update the info here, but please take note that there is a dedicated article on the Ijoid languages which is already somewhat more up to date. See Defaka on one of the closely related languages in the periphery of the Niger-Delta. — mark 08:05, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

population

Please can you amend the population of the Ijo speakers. It is just not possible that there are 100 million Ijo speakers

Thank you very much for taking the time to point this out. It has been corrected. — mark 17:30, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Addition of other foods of Ijaw people

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added three more foods I saw that were surprisingly omitted; Opuru-fulou, Kiri-igina, and ignabeni. I also added citations (one happens to be my article). Please review my changes, when you can.
