IFRA – Institut de Recherche français en Afrique – Yoruba Name project Road-Meet

The Yorùbá Name online dictionary is a dynamic site, reflecting the constant flow of updates suggested by users as well as new input from on-the-ground research. So far, their focus has been somewhat Nigeria-centric, with a bit of Beninese influence, of which Laila’s French background has been notably felt, but their hope is that curious minds and knowledgeable strangers from all over the world will benefit from and possibly contribute to the site. For this to happen, they plan to translate the platform into several languages including Yorùbá, French and Portuguese.
