What is Naija Lingo?
Naija Lingo is an online Dictionary for all your Nigerian pidgin/broken English needs. It is a dictionary for people who want definitions to Nigerian words/slang, names and phrases and created by the people (you) who know them. Naija Lingo is an open dictionary where you the user are free to add and edit words as time changes, and as the meaning of words evolve and new words are formed.

Have you ever heard a new Nigerian slang that you didn’t know what it meant? Or a phrase that baffled you? This is where you and everyone who is interested in expanding their Pidgin English vocabulary will find answers.
We the Naija Lingo team have set of on an ambitious goal to compile all of Nigeria’s Pidgin English for all of us to use and learn. This can only happen with your help.

Why Nigerian Pidgin English
Nigerian Pidgin English like any other language is derived from several other languages. It is a major factor in the communication between citizens of West African countries. But there has been little done to acknowledge it existence, we need to change that.
Why you should contribute words
The Naija Lingo team knows they cannot make this revolution happen alone so we call on all those far and wide who want to have fun defining a new language, we have given you a space on the internet and have given you the tools to make this happen, incase you didn’t know Nigerian pidgin English is on the verge of becoming a full fledge language of its own, be part of this revolution.

Make we do this tin well well, e go betta for all of us.

We would like to note that the first few words on this site were seeded from Babawilly's pidgin dictionary, which can be found at:


Word of the day?
Word of the day is a randomly generated word daily that is shown on the home page, this is supposed to help visitors dig deep into tha vast number of words on Naija Lingo.

Why do I have to register to add a word?
When you register it helps us organise and manage the words you put in properly. It also helps us weed out spam from the site too.
Why should I rate a word?
Rating a word is going to be for your good and everyone elses. This will help you weed the trashy definitions from the good ones in a word that has multiple entries.

What or Who is a lexibutor?
Here at Naija Lingo we love our contributors and since this is a dictionary created and managed by all of us I guess it is fair to call ourselves word smiths hence lexicon contributors. more info
