What Is "Dirty" And "Stain" In YORUBA Language? by purem(m): 8:10pm On Dec 01, 2017
Someone should translate this in YORUBA


"don't stain my dress, your hands are dirty"

Dirty in Yoruba means Idòtí
Stain means Abàwón

Don't stain me, your hands are dirty could be directly translated thus, "Ma fi abawon yimi lara, owo re doti."

It seems like "dirty" and "stain" doesn't have it own word in Yoruba Lang....


Coz when people want to make use of both words, they tend to go like!; "ma stain mi, o ri pe owo e dirty ni?"

We don't need words to express what we are.

I understand that you may get angry.

It has, all languages tend to use English. Especially the young shall grow, they put English in between their languages doesn't mean they don't have what's its called in that language. So are u saying before English was brought to Nigeria. They're was nothing like stain or dirts in Yoruba which is the most complete language angry

Stain could be used as a verb or noun in English language but its yoruba translations ABAWON or EERI or IDOTI
only exists as nouns.


While dirty which is an adjective in English language is tranlasted as DOTI in yoruba language, DOTI
could be used as a verb or adjective depending on the premises of its occurence in a statement.

However IDOTI (stain, noun) should not be confused for DOTI (make unclean, dirty), which could be a verb or adjective according to where it appeared in the statement.


The two sentences are different in composition because obviously they are from two different Languages.

If sentence A is translated from the original Language (English) to Yoruba Language it would read like this " Ma doti aso mi nitori owo re doti.
Here the first" doti" occured as a verb, while at the second instance it is used simply as an adjective.

I hope this helps
