Igbo is the native language of the Igbo people from Nigeria. Igbo, or Ibo, was first proposed as a separate language in 1939. Consequently, not much written literature exists.
The Igbo calendar (Igbo: Ògụ́àfọ̀ Ị̀gbò) is the traditional calendar system of the Igbo people which has 13 months in a year (aro), 7 weeks in a month (onwa), and 4 days in a week (izu) (in the same way as the Yoruba and Urhobo calendar) plus an extra day at the end of the year, in the last month.
In Igbo, adjectives are a closed class, meaning that their number is limited, and new ones are not often added. Payne (1990) counts just eight: ukwu ‘big’, nta ‘small’; oji ‘dark’, ọcha ‘light’; ọhụrụ ‘new’, ochie ‘old’; ọma ‘good’; ọjọọ ‘bad’.
