‘Otofe’ is a praise name used only to greet a married woman in Anioma, and it means ‘ote ofe’ or ‘cooker of soup’. (The Anioma love soup so much, and cherish a woman who can cook it.)
The reason the ‘e’ in ‘ote ofe’ becomes swallowed when written is that the Igbo linguistic principle of Olilo Udaume is applied. It is like greeting someone with the words, ‘Chairman!’
The greeting for married men is ‘Ajeh’.

But the greeting for married men or an elderly man is ajeh and not ejeh

Which one is ndokwa Igbo again?
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by bigfrancis21(m): 11:54pm On Feb 04|
Sorry he meant Ndokwa Yorubas.

Halt misleading the general public. There’s no such thing as Ndokwa Igbo. It’s Ndokwa.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by igbodefender: 2:44pm On Feb 05|
chyckxx:Ndokwa are Igbo. They might not be in the South East, but they are Igbo!
Stop using the fact that they are not in the South East to carve them out of the Great Igbo Nation.

nke001:Are Ndokwa not Igbo? WTS!?
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by Eberejesus111(m): 3:16pm On Feb 05|
True, but there is a friend of mine in school days, her name was Cynthia Isioma Nwose, but when, I told her you're Igbo, she was like No. I was a bit confused. Since then, I don't argue with people who speak igbo but are not igbo. It's parts of what they were thought, let's leave them and let them be. Although earthly I'm from the Igbo tribe, but my main country is the country Zion.

igbodefender:Stop spreading lies, oga. What you’re posting is not factual. Are you from Ndokwa?
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by igbodefender: 9:08pm On Feb 05|
So, you want to tell the world that 'otofe' has a different meaning from the phrase 'Ote ofe' right?
Ndokwa nation is an Igbo nation. Both Ndokwa and the rest of the Igbo race speak Igbo and have Igbo surnames. Therefore, Ndokwa nation is Igbo. QED.
How can you tell a nation that bears Igbo surnames they are not Igbo? And then you accuse people who want to promote their culture of telling lies!?
Up the united Igbo Nations! United We Stand!
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by igbodefender: 9:10pm On Feb 05|
Eberejesus111:Isioma is an Igbo word. She is Igbo, God bless her. Nwose her surname is Igbo. She is Igbo.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by igbodefender: 9:11pm On Feb 05|
chyckxx:People are promoting their culture, you are accusing them of 'spreading lies'...
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by Eberejesus111(m): 9:37pm On Feb 05|
igbodefender:You know what I feel dear beloved brother. You don't force people to accept your culture or the way you live. If they say they are not igbo, let's accept their decisions and mind our business. I don't see what they or the Igbos would gain by claiming them, fighting over people that does not want to accept you is ridiculous.
The Igbos have tried for decades to bring back their brethren from other regions to unity, but they've all been adamant, even Akwa ibom and I guess cross-river are more closer to their Igbo neighbours than some neighbour who answer Igbo names and their culture.
I believe the people in the south-south that bear Igbo names should learn to live in unity with their neighbors. Love and unity between all of us in our country Nigeria, would foster great achievements for us in this country.
God bless y'all. Please I'm sorry If anyone had taken offence in what I posted. Thank you.

May God bless you for this reply
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by nineone: 9:22am On Feb 09|
Very shameless thread. Must you force yourselves on someone? Going to the length of attaching Igbo to their ethnic name out of mischief? This is shameful
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by Eberejesus111(m): 11:28am On Feb 09|
darfay:Thank you sir, God bless you too... I so much appreciate your divine words.

Ehen! so we ve wise pepo lyk dis on nairaland, keep it up dear, me am ijaw n ikwere, but am also from Zion so we r bro n sis
i wish i cud throw more light on the subject but the question on whether ikwerres, ndokwa n odas are really Igbos is one that cannot be answered with a simple yes or no n it's not something u can really explain well in writing
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by Eberejesus111(m): 4:43pm On Feb 11|
magicjack:All of us in the south part of Nigeria, have to remove ourselves from the bounds of culture and all. Culture is good ( please don't put me wrong) but what I'm saying is the purpose of that culture, what are it's benefits to the part of place that you reside, does it cause the harm of disunity, or foster love.
I think the Igbos are being misunderstood, what they only desire is unity, because if we all at the south can be one bond of a people, it would be too hard for outside and mischievous forces to use us as puppets. For example what can be the cause of the oil-spillages in the Niger-delta, Yes greed and also disunity. Just imagine, an utopia kind of place at the south south and south east regions, where we share the same goal and love. It would have been impossible for such spillages to be at the delta areas of Nigeria and so many other factors; politically, economically and culturally.
But all the same, my advice for the Igbos is this, Love isn't forced, love is acquired. Leave them, peradventure history can be changed by God, and they would soon realize that the only way to foster development and happiness between all of us, is the righteousness of God prevailing between all of us, whereby we live in absolute unity. God bless you.
God bless South-south, God bless South- east, and overall God bless our blessed country Nigeria.

The truth is only shameful when someone desperately wants it hidden. But truth trampled on the ground shall rise again.
You didn't even make a comment on the subject of the thread, except trying to derail it. Well, News flash: any time you comment on this thresd, it rises again to the top of the threads in Culture Section.
Oh, before I forget:
"Truth is life" is translated as "Eziokwu by ndu" in Igbo. Please translate it in Ndokwa, since you say the Ndokwa Nation is not Igbo. If it isn't the same phrase "Eziokwu by ndu", I might just send you some Bitcoin.
Others in the house, find any Ndokwa person around and tell them to translate " Truth is life" in Ndokwa.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by googi: 5:11pm On Feb 13|
What a relief!
I thought he was going to say -
Igbo and Yoruba carry piriki for hand go greet married woman. Dem Don spoil dis world.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by nineone: 9:40pm On Feb 13|
igbodefender:you do not have a point. What is the difference between a language and a dialect? What is the difference between a tribe and an ethnic group? To what extent does a language differ from another language before it can be termed an independent language? Is it by intelligibility or other factors? The problem is you guys are grossly ignorant hence foolishly pursue an unjust cause unjust.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by igbodefender: 11:01pm On Feb 13|
nineone:You should answer all those questions you typed up there, plus make a valid point.
What is the difference between the phrase "Eziokwu by ndu" in Ndoki Igbo and Ndokwa Igbo?
If you cannot give us a valid difference between the Ndoki and Ndokwa interpretations of the above phrase; or if you cannot comment on the unique way Ndokwa Igbos greet their married women (which happens to be the topic of this thread), then please stop wasting your mb on this thread. Go away.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by nineone: 11:13pm On Feb 13|
igbodefender:you need to answer my question Mr. You don't go about forcing yourself on people that don't give a hoot about you. Are you guys so shameless? This is really pathetic and shameful. Where's your sense of pride?
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by igbodefender: 11:19pm On Feb 13|
nineone:Hate speech hate speech hate speech!
Contribute positively to the thread or get off my mentions!
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by uzobaby(f): 5:50pm On Feb 15|
nineone:intelligibility is one way of determining if a speech form is a dialect or distinct language. ..calm down with the attack.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by Ishilove: 10:42pm On Feb 15|
nke001:I wonder o
Op, kindly don't put 'Igbo' and 'Ndokwa' in the same sentence
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by Ishilove: 10:46pm On Feb 15|
Eberejesus111:Thank you. This debate has been going on since I can remember.
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by nineone: 10:46pm On Feb 15|
uzobaby:the person creating a post deliberately giving it a sensational title is the one on the attack not me. The post was made with only one intent. And about my question, you gave an answer but your answer wasn't complete. Intelligibility is one of the factors. What is the most prominent factor?
|Re: How Ndokwa Igbos Greet Married Women by agadez007(m): 9:49am On Feb 16|
Why are you guys making these people look important?
I hate these you are igbo I am not Igbo arguments,Gosh
