Urhobo Language

Urhobo – English Dictionary


Sustaining and advancing Urhobo language must be a priority for us all.  We are delighted to bring you Urhobo-English Dictionary written by Anthony Obakpọnọvwẹ Ukere; B.A. (HONS) Linguistics (UNIBEN), ANIPR and Typed in by George Sider for Kay Williamson (†). This version is edited by Roger Blench (Cambridge 2005).

The present Urhobo dictionary was locally published in Nigeria, printed by Ilupeju Press, Benin City. The original is not dated, but the preface is dated 1986, so perhaps this is the date of publication. It was typed into the computer, originally into Macintosh and later transferred to PC at the behest of Kay Williamson who has some role in encouraging its original publication.

This is a great starting point for those who want to learn Urhobo language and good reference source for writing Urhobo.  We hope you make good use of it.
