on Igbo pronunciation. 



I. The following types are generally admitted in the Igbo ortho-_ 
graphy, namely: a, -a, b, c, d, e, ft f, g, h, i, j, k, 1, m, n, o, o, j 
p, r, s, t, u, w, y, z. 

As a general rule, every letter or combination of letters, repre- 
sents the same sound on all circumstances. 

II. Vowels. The vowels have always the same sound, thus: 

a sounds always as a in «mat» — 
e ,, ,, ,, e ,, «iate» 

i „ „ „ i „ «is» 

o „ ,. „ o „ «hole» 

u „ „ „ u „ «put» 

Remark. The vowels (a), e, o. u can have a sharp or a 
grave sound. 

III. Consonants. All the consonants, with the exception of 
h, have the same sound as in English. — The aspirate «h» is only 
used to form the compounds «gh» and «sh». 

Remark. The consonants g, s and t have always the hard 
sounds as in the words «good», « sell » and «termitate». 

IV. Compound consonants. The compound consonants are 
of a frequent use in the Igbo language. They are six, namely: fy 
kp, gb, gh, sh, n. 

In kp the k must be considered as modifying the consonant p; 
thus kp in okpu, hat. 

' Gb has rather the sound of a strong b, uttered with an effort 
of the lips. 

Oh are throat letters. It is by trying to utter g- h in the throat 
that the right sound is given; thus g-halu, leave. 

<jj has the sharp sound of ch in « cherry » v. g. (jhiku, God. 

Sh has the sound of sh in «sheet». Ashilisha, a kind of fruit. 

JT is the equivale ntof ng in German. It has the guttural sound 
of ng in «Engel». 



linn ■?■ iQK/)i 



V. Nasal sounds. The vowels a, e, o are - frequently ac- 
companied by a nasal sound, when followed by the consonant n. 
Thus awu, sun; ewe, monkey; owu, death. 

VI. Elision. As a general rule it may be stated that elision 
nearly always takes place when two vowels come together; thus if* 
odjo (for ife odjo) evil. 

Elision does not take place in the following cases: 

1. When euphony does not admit it. 

2. When through its use, the meaning of the word would have 
to suffer.

UPON THE

by which this dictionary 
has been published. 

This pious auxiliary Society 
of the African Missions was 
founded the 29 th April 1894

His Holiness Pope Leo XIII. 
and placed under the control 
of the Sacred Congregation of 
the Propaganda in Rome. The 
Holy See granted it «the 
Decree » of approbation the 
7 th February 1902. 

lis aim and scope is to save 
the soul of African negroes 
and procure the liberation of 
-slaves by helping the African 
Missions in every way: as for 
example: by lectures; by wri- 
ting and publishing periodicals 
and other writings in different 
languages, to rouse an interest 
in the Missions of Africa and 
to make kown the labours and 
successes of the Missionaries; 
by printing' books compiled by 
the Missionaries in native lan- 
guages; by promoting confe-

des conferences, des reunions, 
des representations, etc. ; en 
confectionnant des ornements 
sacres, etc. ; en recevant des 
offrandes pour les Missions et
