Idoma language is a unique simple language which many Idoma sons and daughters
cherish and always want to communicate with it in public. But against this
backdrop, not many of them know how to speak it fluently. And worst still, not
many and even some other tribes (who love the language) know some of the
simplest expressions that are being spoken on a daily basis. 

To ground you in
some of these expressions, Freedom

therefore presents to you some of these simple expressions and
their translations (replies) in English language:
