Since I began studying Ifá – Òrìṣà I realized the need to understand Yorùbá language as a fundamental part of learning the culture that was bequeathed to us in the past.
The reliable documentation that can be found in Spanish is quite scarce, since in most of the brochures or photocopied books that pass from hand to hand, the correct spelling or punctuation marks of the words are not respected, and that can change their meaning completely, with only a small variation of the tildes, or in the diacritical accents. We took on the task of developing this dictionary to help all those interested in learning Yorùbá. It will be especially useful for Ifá – Òrìṣà practitioners, since it will provide them with the true meaning of the words as well as their correct pronunciation. In this sense we have sought the support of people whose mother tongue was Yorùbá language, so we can listen to the words with the correct pronunciation, something extremely important in the ceremonial liturgy of Ifá – Òrìṣà.
Currently, the Emeyé Apps development team continues with the research and correction work to provide the Spanish Yorùbá – Yorùbá Spanish Dictionary App with the largest database of words in the Yorùbá language.
