Re: Yariyan by topkin(m): 11:11pm On Mar 19, 2008

Re: Yariyan by DisGuy: 3:37am On Mar 20, 2008
it means Female/girl usually a young lady

It means girl or daughter (definitely not wife! Wife is amariya) in Hausa. But it's usually spelt "yarinya"
Re: Yariyan by MCUsman(m): 5:19pm On Mar 20, 2008
Yarinya means Lady

Karamar Yarinya means a small girl (one that has not attained puberty)

amarya means a new bride

By the way of all termiologies in Hausa why this interest on the word yarinya

I think it means woman. I recall when I was serving in Minna and was always asked if I've got a Yarinya yet  grin
