The Semantics of "Okay" (OK) in Nigerian English.
Adegbija, Efurosibina; Bello, Janet
World Englishes, v20 n1 p89-98 Mar 2001
Investigates the contexts in which "okay" is used in Nigerian English. Discusses how differences in usage of the term should be recognized, respected, and accepted and raises the question of whether or not current theories of learning are powerful enough to accommodate new norms of meanings that inevitably develop in language contact situations.
