Hi all,
As some of you know, I am Malaysian and have been active in Nairaland for some time but I was hoping if you could explain to me what are some of the meanings as stated below as I happen to noticed that most of you have been using these words and also I would love to learn something new. smiley

And also if you would like to add anything for my further knowledge, I would appreciate it. PLEASEEE. . . . Whatever you do, No BAD WORDS as I am underage!  grin

Here it goes:-
1) Na Wa / Na Wa Oh
2) Jare
3) Nne
4)abeg
5)Una
6) Halla
7) juju
8 ) fufu
9) dey
10) Gwote

Ok, I have more but will continue later onwards. Thank you.  wink

Hey gabrywyl, some of these words are either slang, pidgin English, or other Nigeria local languages
for example:
Nne is Igbo language meaning sister
Nna is Igbo language meaning brother
Abeg is pidgin meaning I Beg U
Fufu is a local food
dey is pidgin its being use in different ways, like:
who dey there = who is there
wey den dey = where are they
you dey talk to me? = Are you talking to me?

Wey is where?
wey d thing = where is the thing

Halla meaning frank, blunt etc

OK let me stop there, I am not 100% sure of the meaning am giving to you, this is from my intuitive cheesy

Since the thread is under General Discussion, there is no moderator for it, therefore get to talk to Seun to rectify the problem.
Re: What Are These Nigerian Language? by Gabry(f): 5:20pm On Jun 30, 2008
How do I talk to Seun? Where can I find him?
