Multilingualism is a common phenomenon in most nations of the world. It is a situation where more than two languages exist. In many countries like Nigeria and India, there are hundreds of languages.

The country is also home to more than languages, but there are many more languages which are yet to be classified.

These languages can be classified into two main language families: the Afro-Asiatic language family and the Niger-Congo language family. For example, in Yoruba and in other Nigerian languages the horizontal line which Lepsius used in writing 'open' e and o has been replaced sometimes by a vertical line and sometimes by a dot.

In the Lepsius alphabet, however, the dot has the opposite meaning to the horizontal line, and is used to indicate a 'close' vowel.

It is very important to also note that most of us have developed the habit of speaking Yoruba but hardly read it and almost never write it anymore. In Yoruba, for example, there are a number of angli- cized orthographic forms in personal and place names as in Oshogbo (Osogbo), Ilesha (llesa), Funsho (Funso) and so on.

In these words, the voiceless alveopalatal fricative sound written in English as 'sh' is used instead of the Yoruba orthographic form 's'.

than languages spoken in Nigeria have written orthographies. It would be impossible for a nation with more than indigenous languages to attempt to develop all of them for use in formal or official domains. There is, therefore, a perceived hierarchical ranking of the numerous indigenous languages in Nigeria based on demography.

Attempts to write the language goes back to the late 18th century. The history of writing the language shows that different people have at different times adopted different ways of writing the language.
