Although I am not perfect in bini language but these below are correct any not posted will be made available later on

Iwinosa = Work of God or Handwork of God
Ego = not a bini term for money
Owo = money
House = Owa

Igho = Also used to refer to money

Ego and owo are not Edo terms for money. The one, only and correct way of saying MONEY in Edo is IGHO.
IWINOSA= GOD'S HANDIWORK

IRENE= I HAVE COME

OSAIVBIE= GOD DOES NOT SLEEP

TWINS = IVINEVA

GRANDMOTHER = IYENOKHUA

FAMILY = EGBE ( USUALLY ), OGBE

MOTHER OF TWINS = IYE-IVINEVA

HOUSE = OWA

Uhm.... I know small about the matter you speak of, but to be clear: that was not my response you replied this rant to. My own was a simple question for translation, which @bokohalal helped with...and for which I said thanks smiley I'm Dutch and I wanted a translation from independent source cheesy

But on the other hand, if someone has an interest in the language and ask a normal question, why react in this way? Nobody spoke of the Edo/Yoruba matter, is you that is dragging in to this... which is fine, but some respect for others might go a long way.
