Teacher: Now, you must not say, “I ain’t goin’.” You should say, “I am not going, he is not going; we are not going; they are not going.”
Student: Wow! Ain’t nobody goin’ then?

In strict Efik/Ibibio, we don't have such spelling as some people do in Udoh instead of Udo. How is it pronounced. Uko has to do with bravery and an outstanding performer.

Hot - ofiop in efik, ufiop in ibibio and Afiop in Annang.
Cold - adenghe
Cool and warm ain't really got their own word in our dialect yet so we'll just use the English vocabulary of it.

Cool. I was reading about Efik people earlier today. I noticed a prominent Efik man with the name Aya Iyo. In a list of Efik names, Iyo was noted as the masculine version to the name Nkese (which means Let me go and see?). Maybe Iyo is a nickname?

Effiong is a name after 1 of Efik old market days.(I think Fiongaran or something like that) The female version is Affiong. Same as
Etim and Atim, Edet and Arit, Asuquo and Iquo, etc., the are all names from Efik market days and so the are Efik names, Bassey is also an Efik name which can mean something more detail in Efik, but it's also like Abasi=God. Ebong can means Shout. Never heard of Oduobuk, although Mbuk means News.
