Everyone is guilty of at least one of the underlisted words including me. Funny enough, it’s sounds so right when used but we’ve been wrong all along.
These words actually do not exist, see below:
This doesn’t exist anywhere else except only in Nigeria. If you doubt this, just search”Installmentally” on google and watch only Nigerian sites pop up.
This is another one I don’t understand. Does anyone ever hold a vigil during the day? Vigil is vigil, please do away with the night.
How hard is it to say deflowered? Very hard, I guess because even health professionals and newsmen use this absurd word that doesn’t exist.
4. Wake Keeping (Wake keep)
It’s actually called ‘Wake’ and it’s not even our custom we adapted it from the old European days of watching over a corpse till it’s buried.
Everyone is guilty of this, if not in spelling but certainly in pronunciation. This is not meant as a euphemism for the female body part. When Nigerians say this word, they mean “cunning”.
