Nigeriansk pidgin-engelska
Explanation:
NE om språk i Nigeria:
Språk
I N. talas närmare 500 olika språk. Bland de största språken återfinns tre av de stora afrikanska språkfamiljerna, de afroasiatiska språken (hausa med 20 % av befolkningen), de nilo-sahariska språken (kanuri, 4%) och Niger–Kongospråken (yoruba 20 %, igbo, 17%, fulani, 9% och ibobio, 4%). Hausa, yoruba och igbo erkänns i författningen; engelska är dock dominerande i offentliga sammanhang. Nigeriansk (engelskbaserad) pidgin används tillsammans med de stora inhemska språken i mellanfolklig kommunikation.

agree  Donald MacDonell-Sanderson: Mats is right, there is no such "real" language as Nigerian, in that country they speak at least 6 different languages.
