Noboby knows the real meaning of these English words.

There are some English word which nobody knows their real names in his/her language or dialect not what you call them but there real name.

For instance, onion in Yoruba is called alubosa, Hausa call it Al'basa. I don't think these two languages have there own name for onion because the word Al'basa is borrowed from Arabic language.

Apart from onion there are still many English words which we don't really have indigenous name for. If you know it,you can tell us in the comment

Below are the other words

Onion

Water melon

Apple

Shirt

Machine(sewing)

Rice
