    I'm a British English speaker, but I'm not very familiar with Nigerian English; my knowledge being confined to authors like Chinua Achebe. I'll have to look around first and then come back to you.

    Re: English

    These look interesting. (I might even take a closer look at them myself.) There are a surprising number of websites where they discuss both Nigerian and British English. Go to: http://ms101.mysearch.com/jsp/GGmain...h+AND+Nigerian

    (What do you think, TDOL?)

    A very useful site- just what the person seems to be looking for. Good googling there.

    Thanks. I learned how to do that at the who2.com website. They have a tutorial on web searches there. (Their quizzes are fun. Go to: www.who2.com ).
