(E) 11111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ [11 + 100 + 11,000 ]

Eleven thousand one hundren and eleven

(Ẹ) 111111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen[11 + 100 + 111,000]

One Hundred and eleven thousand one hundren and eleven

(F) 11111111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen yan Ẹbo owọrọ

[11 + 100 + 111,000 + 11,000,000]

Eleven million, one hundred and eleven thousand one hundred and eleven

(G) 111111111
Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen yan Ẹbo owọrọ yan iyisen

[11 + 100 + 111,000 + 111,000,000]
One hundred and eleven million, one hundred and eleven thousand, one hundren and eleven


NOTE:


“Yan” or “yaen” or “yanren” means add / addition.

Two digits or numbers together without “yan” or “yaen” refers to multiplication of said numbers. e.g. as in “Arriaisen owọrọ” and “Ẹbo owọrọ


Accents are necesary in 11(owọrọ) and 1000000 (Ẹbo) above to identify and apropriate vowel sounds.


(Iyi = 20 ; Isen = 5)

Iyisen = 100 (20 x 5)

Owọrọ yan iyisen = 111

Uri / Arria / Iyisen eva = 200

Arriaisen = 1000 (200 x 5)

Arriaisen owọrọ = 11000

Arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen = 111,000

Ẹbo owọrọ yan iyisen = 111,000,000

Understanding Money In Edo By Uwagboe Ogieva

Before the coming of the European or English pounds and shillings, Edo people were using cowries - 'ikpigho', as a form of money in economic, trade and social transactions. Over time, this was done away with when a new system of money for transaction were introduce. Today Edo people use 'ENAIRA' and “IKOBO” (Naira and Kobo). However, Edo system of counting money is a beat different numerically. In Edo, 10 kobo (10 ikọbọ) is equal to Isele ọkpa, 100 kobo equal to Isele igbe

 

 

Bellow is a simple illustration:

 

1 kobo = 1 ikọbọ
10 kobo = (10 ikọbọ) - Isele ọkpa
100 kobo = Isele igbe
1 naira = Isele igbe
2 naira = Ikpen ọkpa
3 naira = Ikpen ọkpa vbe Isele igbe (ọkpa vb’igbe)
4 naira = Ikpen eva
5 naira = Ikpen eva vbe Isele igbe (eva vb’igbe)
6 naira = Ikpen eha
7 naira = Ikpen eha vbe Isele igbe (eha vb’igbe)
8 naira = Ikpen enen
9 naira = Ikpen enen vbe Isele igbe (ọkpa vb’igbe)
10 naira = Ikpen isen
20 naira = Ikpen igbe
30 naira = Ikpen ekesugie
40 naira = Ikpen ugie
50 naira = Ikpen isen yan ugie
60 naira = Ikpen ọgban
70 naira = Ikpen isen yan ọgban
80 naira = Ikpen iyeva
90 naira = Ikpen isen yan iyeva
100 naira = Ikpen ekigbesiyeha

200 naira = Ikpen iyisen / Ẹkpo ọkpa
300 naira = Ẹkpo ọkpa vb'ukhionmwen
400 naira = Ẹkpo eva
500 naira = Ẹkpo eva vb'ukhionmwen
600 naira = Ẹkpo eha
700 naira = Ẹkpo eha vb'ukhionmwen
800 naira = Ẹkpo enen
900 naira = Ẹkpo enen vb'ukhionmwen
1000 naria = Ẹkpo isen

2000 naira = Ẹkpo igbe3000 naira = Ẹkpo ekesugie
4000 naira = Ẹkpo ugie
5000 naira = Ẹkpo isen yan ugie
6000 naira = Ẹkpo ọgban
7000 naira = Ẹkpo isen yan ọgban
8000 naira = Ẹkpo iyeva
9000 naira = Ẹkpo isen yan iyeva
10000 naira = Ẹkpo ekigbesiyeha
