In order to revive and promote Etsako Language, this website is presented by Etsako Language Research And
Development Centre (ELRDC). The centre is poised to the preservation and growth of Afemai language and culture. The
dialects in Afemai are complex and not in conformity. There is no one acceptable dialect as the general Afemai
language. This complexity fueled the desire of the research centre to develop a standard language out of the
various dialects in Afemai.
We must agree that there is one language called YEKHEE spoken in Afemai which is adulterated from clan to
clan. These clanish adulterated Yekhee is here harmonized to bring out the developed ETSAKO LANGUAGE. The developed
Etsako language have literary books from E.L.R & D.C for indept teaching. It has created a platform for learning of
the language in schools both locally & internationally. The text books, Dictionaries will enable those in the
diaspora to have materials for teaching and learning. The language is already positioned to enable Etsako Scholars
translate effectively the desired Etsako Language Bible and other books relevant to our people in our mother
Etsako language is developed to be comprehensive to take care of every aspect of life. The centre is acting on the
word of God in Genesis two verse nineteen, to name whatever God or man created. After all, whatever name is a
subject matter today was given by man and not an Angels. Our forefathers who were illiterate gave names, developed
the language we use today before now, so we should advance our mother tongue beyond where they stopped. Start to
learn the developed Etsako language today.
