|The Phrase "Good People" by holatin(m): 9:02am On Apr 10, 2017|
I am creating this thread based on how some nairalander responded to a comment from mologi when she used the word "good people" for one person on this thread
she is right with her statement.
Reason why a lot of people don't know is dat
1) we will rather castigate people instead of correcting them.
2) a lot of us watch only our local made movie,
trust me you can't learn more about the language English when you watch only Nollywood.
in fact the first way I know "good people" isn't vocal bomb is by hearing it in foreign movie especially US TV series.
I had to satisfy my curiosity by researching why the word people will be use for a person.
and that is how I came across the The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and
Unconventional English. published in 1894
Gud people (noun) is a person who can be trusted and counted on.
English isn't our language so we should take it easy and not put people down when they speak it (badly)

English Language is not a measure of intelligence. Not here on Nairaland.
