Mention English Words Which Are The Same As Your Native Words. by beauty7: 6:03pm On Oct 16, 2021
My language is Annang which is a variant of ibibio language.

The following words are the same with the same meaning:

1. CAN:

English: I CAN do it.
Annang/Ibibio: Mkpa CAN nnam, which means "I CAN do it" in English.

So CAN has the same pronunciation and meaning in English and Annang/Ibibio.

2. DUG:

English: I DUG a pit.
Annang/Ibibio: Amin DUG udi

So DUG has the same pronunciation and meaning in English and Annang/Ibibio.

Please share your own dialet words which has the same pronunciation and meaning as English words.

Since human beings originated from one single man,it is expected that they should have some words that are the same, because when you migrate to another place, you will lose some of your original language although some words will still remain the same.

That explains why some words are the same.

Is there any financial benefits attached to the First to comment you're dragging here? Or is there a National Merit Award giving to the person who commented first?

Use a semi-colon “;”

Instead of a comma between “anymore” and “behave”.
