Igalapedia Wordnet

This is a collaborative network for Indigenous Language Research and Development initiated as part of Igalapedia Project. The Igala WordNet was born out of studies and research carried out on the English wordNet (lexical database of English) for development of Igala language while applying techniques acquired from field of engineering studies. This is to create a large lexical database of Igala and many other Nigerian languages for cross dialect studies and understanding the pattern of Nigerian indigenous languages.
The program has been written and the simulation copy is been tested on Igala language with parts of speech, figure of speech and words structure been grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser on the Igalapedia project’s website and the desktop dictionary.

A proverb (from Latin: proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying, popularly known and repeated, that expresses a truth based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity. They are often metaphorical. A proverb that describes a basic rule of conduct may also be known as a maxim. Proverbs are often borrowed from similar languages and cultures, and sometimes come down to the present through more than one language.
