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 now harmonized to bring out the ETSAKO LANGUAGE. The developed Etsako language have literary book from E.L.R & D.C for indept learning. 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 of 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 tongue.
Etsako language is developed to be comprehensive to take care of every aspect of life. The centre is acting on the word of God as 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 Angels. Our forefathers who were illiterate gave names, developed the language we use today, so we should continue where they stopped.
Start to learn Etsako language today.
