This is actually bullshit. You take Ikwerre and compare it with some standardized form of Igbo, and you think you're making a point?

I can pick any two Igbo dialects, do comparison and come up with more differences than what I am seeing here.

By the way; mgbe for time, chiokike for God, ayo for onions, ubi for farm, and many other expressions you represented as Ikwerre are used in many places throughout the southeast.

Ikwerre language belongs solidly within the Igbo linguistic continuum, and that is a linguistic fact.
