    @ Nicki Minaj :
    SIMPLE EVERY DAY CONVERSATIONAL IGBO/IBO LANGUAGE SENTENCES NO. 9.002
    SUBJECT : KEHDUH ? ......... meaning HOW ARE YOU ? { AN EXAMPLE OF THE VARIOUS MEANINGS OF KEHDUH DEPENDING ON USAGE }
    Nicki aezeegboh ohbee nm,
    Nicki aezeegboh ohbee-m,
    Nicki ezigbo obim,
    Nicki my real/true/good/special heart,
    Nicki my real/true/good/special darling,

    that very frequently used Igbo/Ibo word kehduh ( kedu ) can mean quite a whole lot of different things depending on usage.
    e.g as we have seen earlier here at thisyour superb website, viz : www.mypinkfriday.com
    [ --------- ref ; SIMPLE EVERY DAY CONVERSATIONAL IGBO/IBO LANGUAGE SENTENCES. NO. 9001 --------- ]
    kehduh can mean hi !
    and
    kehduh can also mean what ? ........ as in ......... kehduh arfah-ee-ei ? = what is your name ?

    Onika Tanya aezeegboh ohbee nm,
    Onika Tanya aezeegboh ohbee-m,
    Onika Tanya ezigbo obim,
    Onika Tanya my real/true/good/special heart,
    Onika Tanya my real/true/good/special darling,
    here, we shall look at kehduh used to mean how are you ?

    Onika, perhaps it is best we start by looking at the following sentences :

    ONIKA TANYA MARAJ : Sammy, kehduh kar ee meh ?
    SAMUEL OBIORA OJEKWE : Nicki, orr de nmaah.

    VOCABULARY
    [i] kehduh = how

    [ii] kar = are

    [iii]ee = you

    [iv] meh = do .... in this usage meh is better intrepreted/translated as doing

    NOTE :
    [v] eh-meh = doing.
    as in
    kehduh eefeh ee nar eh-meh ?
    what thing you are doing ?
    what thing are you doing ?
    what are you doing ?

    [vi] nar = are.
    so, nar = are and kar =are .
    however, they are used in different ways in Igbo/Ibo sentences/sentence constructions as we can see from the above

    [vii] orr = it

    [viii] de = is

    [ix ] nmaah =fine

    therefore
    ONIKA TANYA MARAJ : Sammy, kehduh kar ee meh ?
    SAMUEL OBIORA OJEKWE : Nicki, orr de nmaah.
    translates as
    ONIKA TANYA MARAJ : Sammy, how are you doing ?
    SAMUEL OBIORA OJEKWE : Nicki, it is fine.
    which is equal to
    ONIKA TANYA MARAJ : Sammy, how are you doing ?
    SAMUEL OBIORA OJEKWE : fine, Nicki.
    which is equal to
    ONIKA TANYA MARAJ : Sammy, how are you ?
    SAMUEL OBIORA OJEKWE : fine, Nicki.

    clearly therefore,
    it is this greeting :
    " --------- kehduh kar ee meh ? --------- "

    and it's other equivalents, viz :

    [a.i] " --------- kehduh kar orr de ? -------- " = " --------- how is it ? --------- " .... in sense of meaning .... " -------- how are things ? --------- "
    [a.ii] " --------- kehduh kar eefeh ssyy ar-gar --------- " = " --------- how are things going ? --------- "
    [a.iii] " --------- kehduh kar ohh ssyy ar-gar --------- " = " --------- how is it going ? --------- "

    that have been SHORTENED into the COMMON

    ONIKA TANYA MARAJ : Sammy, kehduh ?
    SAMUEL OBIORA OJEKWE : Nicki, orr de nmaah

    and it's VARIATION

    ONIKA TANYA MARAJ : kehduh ?
    SAMUEL OBIORA OJEKWE : orr de nmaah.

    --------- YEAH. yeah.
    --------- really.

    Cheers !!!!!!!!! Samuel Ojekwe
