Its our pleasure at Igalapedia project that you commit interest to seeking knowledge about Igala language. We want you to enjoy learning Igala language as much as we enjoy teaching it! And we make sure that the Igala we teach you with our learning tools is relevant and useful to you outside of the learning environment.
Our curriculum for Igala studies is divided into three module. The module two which can also be referred to as General Igala Studies is a language study Courses for people of all levels ranging from from complete beginners to near-native speakers of Igala language. Our Igalapedia quiz is a Preparatory self test learning tool that will give you the skills needed to do really well in the Igala language online competition we are putting in place to encourage the learners.
This is a collaborative network for Indigenous Language Research and Development initiated as part of Igalapedia Project. The Igala WordNet was born out of studies and research carried out on the English wordNet (lexical database of English) for development of Igala language while applying techniques acquired from field of engineering studies. This is to create a large lexical database of Igala and many other Nigerian languages for cross dialect studies and understanding the pattern of Nigerian indigenous languages.
The program has been written and the simulation copy is been tested on Igala language with parts of speech, figure of speech and words structure been grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser on the Igalapedia project’s website and the desktop dictionary.
