Thank you very much in advance!

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

I'm sorry but you are not okay. ..
|Re: Bini To English / V.v. Needed by ivineva: 7:00pm On Feb 18, 2016|
Thank you so much! This answered all my question ☺

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 I'm Dutch and I wanted a translation from independent source
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.
