Another Nsibidi Sentence

This was another sentence created with original compound words (or Njikọta Édé), this time just one; 'to eat' (2) which uses the existing Nsibidi for knife (to cut or kill) fire with sticks (or tripod) and a mouth from Nsibidi 'talk' (See the last Nsibidi sentence post) which is understood as 'gather (or kill) cook and put in mouth'.

It's interesting to note that the Nsibidi for plantain (3) was used to inform someone of an order for plantain. It was used on a 'shopping' list (more like farming list).

Note: Again this used Nsibidi from different geographical areas where Nsibidi varies.
