This is where Yoruba language among many other languages in Nigeria and all over the world have some reserved and peculiar words,phrases, clauses and statements that can never be interpreted directly to other languages as you have them. Doing so will distort the meaning further. Rather, you have to learn the appropriate way of saying such word (s) in other languages.
Like "Eku ijoko" now, it doesn`t necessarily mean that someone has been in a sitting position wanting to see someone. It`s a kind of greeting word for someone paying you a visit as well.
Eku Ile is a yoruba greeting statement use to greet people already at home when entering your house. A stranger won`t greet you like that.
Eku Iduro,
Eku Irin-ajo
Eku ise
Eku ikale
All are forms of greetings fit purposely, at a particular time, a particular situation in yoruba land.
Therefore, finding correlative forms of such greetings in other languages, most especially in English language would be somewhat impossible.
Sometimes, there are vocabularies, words and so on in English that mean same thing in just one word in Yoruba language.
