State your dialect so that I can add it to the title.

Perhaps you can read this thread and try and understand what they are saying. It may help to interact with other Igbos.

It might be difficult to find a dictionary in your dialect because igbos in general have numerous dialect.The dialect in igbo dictionaries is what is regarded as 'igbo izugbe' or literary igbo.It is a combination of different igbo dialects.
