Freelang Yoruba-English dictionary

Yoruba is a dialect continuum of West Africa with over 25 million speakers. The traditional Yoruba area, "Yorubaland", comprises the southwestern portion of Nigeria and the republics of Benin and Togo. Apart from referring to the aggregate of dialects, the term Yoruba is used for the standard form of the language (the variety learnt at school and spoken by newsreaders on the radio). Yoruba is a Niger-Congo language.
