Is an alternative to noun. Pronounce in other word a adjective of nouns in general. Grouping things as a single entity and calling them one name. One people are in a group, it is difficult to know all of them by their names in this case they are categorised in groups of gender e.g. she/he and number e.g. they, them, it, us, That, these, those, this, all.

Pronounce Luo singular(Aciel)
Luo Plural(Ma dwong)
she Anyaka Anyira
he Awobi Awobe
they Gin(Under development) gin duc
them Jo(Under development) Ji
it gini

Us wan
That ca ni cage ni
these ego ni ego gi
those cage ni
this eni ene ni
All Weng

NOTE: Under development

Traditionally everything(Magwi ne) are named according to behavior, appearance, sounds, color, walk/movement, reactions etc. Let's find out why Puk/Tortoise(word), Opuk(noun), Opuki(exiting) and Okuto/thorn names has become so. There are two major categories of Opuk namely Land Tortoise(Opuk Ra) and Water Tortoise(Opuk Okulo). The Luo in general have chosen Opuk as a name just because they are always exiting from either water or jungle. They however, have a slang for them too - Oger. Ger was a challenging word chosen to in other word say, "they cannot build". Whenever they see Opuk, they caution them, "Build!?". It is another same as when you walk with your pet, you speak to like a human for that reason the Luo have ever been cautioning the exiter to one day build but it has never been so up to date. Okuto is however, named after its effect. When you get pierced by a thorn, whether you remove it or not, it bleeds, but after a while it closes then begins to swell and that is when the actual pain begins. There are so many types of Okuto e.g. Lango, Lacaro etc. Lacaro is the type that all should be able to see and be aware off because of their size and colour. If you are hit by it, you are possibly careless.

We can agree by now that letters do not make words, but segmenting letters make us have meaningful words. Linguistical disabilities and abilities creates differences in our way of communicating information in spite of meanings. When you speak languages, you are probably going to have an ease in learning a new one because all tricks are same, but syllables makes the situation a little different. Attachment and availability things e.g. food, trees, animals, unusual things we are used to doing allow us use it often and that is our nature. Other people prefers to use Th, au, ph, f, i at the end or beginning of a word and that totally their choice as long as that is what makes them happy and keep them at peace. Why border about it and so are they. Don't get confuse because syllable is so close to pronunciation.

Example 1 Au or Ou

Otto: 2 syllables; ot and to

Outhow: 3 syllables; Ou, tho, ow

example 2 th and i

Ariet: 2 syllables; A and riet

Arieth: 3 syllables; A, Rie and th

Arieti(ariet i): 4 syllables; A, rie, ti, i. The confusion here is that other tribes will say rieti while others will say Riet i(with an ie sound)

example 3 w and i

Opio: 2 syllables; opi, io(the two syllables are hardly noticed because it does not end on i but rather makes it a bridge)

Ophiew: 3 syllables; O, phi(similar to an f sound), ew(e u(eiu) sound)

example 5

Nyalupa: 3 syllables; nya, lu and pa

Nyilubai: 4 syllables; nyi, lu, ba and i

nyingeyotayotato: 7 syllables; nyi, nge, yo, a, yo, ta, to

Every(Ma Gwi) tribe have a special letter beginning or end of word they used often compared to others e.g. O, A, I, Lo, N, M. TH, PH is and Y, I are letters that confuses at all time. Y and i are often either doubled or used separately in words. Putting special letters at beginning of words clearly alter the meaning making it trade mark of that tribe.

To understand our weaknesses, we need to compare ourselves to central and North America. African jungles are full of researchers from countries all over the world because the state governments runs cheap governments. I mean $10,000,000 can bribe one and can blindly give the entire country any trigger moron do whatever they want in our continent without analyzing risks and consequences. I tell you this, no money(Million, billion, trillion, quadrillion, gazillion) not even a bank should have enough money to influence us but reasons should. This people are not going back because the other reasons could they are fleeing, are criminals in their own country/continent, want start their own next family empire, doing, illegal businesses. What we need to do is renegotiate terms with them. Employee professionals to handle those issues, let journalists in to document and police to investigate matters. The other primitive way of course to go into wars. I tell you, you have already lost that war. Other continents have powerful and strength weapons than we do but logic is powerful than any weapon you ever think the Acholi people say, "Rieko loyo kom tek". Meaning some time using your mind can solve all thing than using battle.

Believed me or not, there are four(4) continents of originals that have upto date maintain their fight against supremacy of their territory, control their culture, have their religion and that is Europe, Siberia, Asia and Africa. The others have limited power on their land, culture, security, people just name them. For Africa to compete with them, first we need to know what they have, how they develop it, where they are now and then etc. Europe and Siberia is what I call the white continent, Asia is of course of Asians and Africa for African. The white continent have been playing smart because they are able to accept imperial, supremacy, cultural failed leader i.e. if one of them seem to provide what is necessary at the time, they all fall behind and follow that eliminate death while keep them growing especially the white continent. That is also one of the reasons why their power and authority can be seen globally. As and African, I don't wanna be a global player rather an African player wherever i am and in whatever I do. In the old days it was call African Spirit now it is becoming a PAN which is also a good thing personally. How then do we compete with these people. Some of the reasons are above, but ideally we just need cooperation with them in other words please do understand us and respect our values and so we will do it unto you.

Quite people normally have such strong wording meaning more consonants than vowels. Loud people depends on ascents i.e they want to sound but hide their meaning while its the opposite on the other side. Talking about the Africans big two tribes - the Bantu and Nilotic in general, The bantu used consonants often than the Nilotic and trust me, when they Nilotic speak, you can hear it as far as 5km away. Both Bantu and Nilotic are highlands and lowlands and are both not based on few tribes inside each of them. Having say that, other Bantu tribes pronounce and behave more like Nilotic and so are the Nilotic to Bantu. Below are some words:-

Word Bantu Nilotic
be Mbe Ber
oto otto otoo
dong Ndong dong
bote Mbote bote

Words used in the example above do not take in meanings

Words already exists and that is the easiest part for all of us at this point because all tribes speak and expresses themselves. Our interests are not in the word though, but rather how do they get formed. If rethink alphabet, then words are bunch of letters minced together whatever it actual real meaning is for now. So letters do really form word and so are words to sentence - which is beyond the scope of this article. Let try to pic two letters closely linked and are used interchangeably e.g. K and C and S and C. S and C are problems of their own because they are not actually interchangeably but they are real letters that other tribes missed in their alphabet. Borrowing ideas from language fundamental, K and C are either temperate or food oriented issues.

initial Word Word with K
Word with c
Word with S
1 ongo Kongo Congo Songo
2 Wa Kwa Cwa Swa
3 i ki ci si

If we gather let say fifty(50) tribes and asked all of them to explain what the above words means, there is a probability that a few of them will rime.

In short, alphabet are symbols however, symbols can be anything. It is what defined society i.e an identity of a society. We also have to remember that society is numbers of communities and in Africa that is tribes and ethnics. In the two there are many divisions that makes it difficult to find a single identity for all. When situations turn this way, we take the the commonly used and mostly important e.g. Cua, Task(lak Liech), and Lango and common in Luo. To make that a reality, we need to defined identity of society - what the above represent in terms of culture, religion, people and ideas or quest for unknown. Culturally, drum and OLOTO are common hence, the letter that represent e.g. entertainment, dance, music should come from combination or one of the two because culture is actually three or more of the above. If culture means religion, let say, religion is a believe or constant quest of that we know yet seems too far from us. We therefore, will now want to find out how many tribes know the word religion and what does it translate to them? Imagine it is called Lega, but can we see, lega? No!? but know what it represents wherefore, the symbol becomes that what is we know e.g. represent a man who ones fought or defended entire society from disaster, out break etc. What do he do that time, what did he say, what did he look like what did he like? That is based on what we already know. What if it means reflection of ourselves?

Alphabets are also written during time of transition - a change of life from one thing to another e.g Farmers decided to work on machenic, fisher man decided to become politician, lecturer decided to become a community developer. We now need to look deep into say hundred(s) or thousand(s) of years a head and behind and put in place a symbol that will stand between this time because we want to keep what we do now constant and should mean exactly what we mean now and then.
