Overview of Igala alphabets
Posted by abdul at January 29th, 2013
The Igala alphabet comprise 31 letters adapted from the roman alphabet which in turn was adapted by English.Some of these letters are single units while others are a combination of two letters (diagraphs which nevertheless have single sounds). This is because, unlike English, Igala has a certain units of speech that are peculiar to it. They are five in numbers, namely: (gb, kp, nm, nw, and ny). Conversely, there are some letters in the English alphabet which are non-existent in Igala language. These are letters C, Q(which is “kw” in Igala), S,V,X and Y.
