Varieties in the Igbo Language



The Igbo language is not actually a single language, but a collection of over forty closely-related dialects (sub-languages) that vary in intelligibility. A modern standard written and spoken Igbo language known as "Igbo Igzugbé" was developed by Igbo scholars in the 1970s and is used in schools and academic institutions to date. Without Igbo Izugbé, it would be difficult for Igbo people to communicate amongst themselves because of the variety of lexica.
