Yoruba is one of Nigeria’s most spoken languages along with Igbo, Hausa, English and Nigerian Pidgin. It is mostly spoken in the south west part of Nigeria and in Benin, where about 17% of the population speaks it. Like Fon and Ewe, Yoruba is a Volta-Niger language, part of a family which spreads from Nigeria to Eastern Ghana. There are three tones in Yoruba - high, middle and low - which affect the meaning of words. Yoruba has borrowed a lot of vocabulary from Arabic and Hausa. It can also double words for extra emphasis.
