In the latest Glamourist History book, I have a discussion of glamour in different parts of the globe. One of the participants is a native Igbo speaker. Although she’s speaking in English during the conversation, I have a couple of phrases where she uses her own terms rather than the European ones. I’m looking for someone who speaks Igbo to look at the terms I came up with. I took an online tutorial, but that’s only going to get me so far.
I’m worried that I’ve come up with a term that’s a) a real word or b) slang for questionable activities.
There are around a dozen words to look at and I can offer a $50 honorarium for doing so.
EDITED TO ADD: Thank you so much. I was able to work with someone to translate those terms.
