Word for the Travel Wise (01/03/06)
Today's word is a Yoruba word:
Ikun - stomach
It's pretty easy as that and may come in handy after eating something your stomach or 'ikun' isn't used to. If a trip to the doctor is necessary I'm sure saying "stomach" or pointing would work, but to avoid any confusion of having a problem with your belly button verses a tummy ache you may just want to throw in 'ikun.' I'm sure any native speaker will be a little impressed.
Motherland Nigeria has an incredible intro to the three languages, Nigerian slang and even a few examples of common Pidgin English spoken. Some aduio samples are available as well.
