"Baaraji" <baraji> | thanks

In a conversation when someone says “I ni ce” (thank you) a common response is “I ni baaraji”. What does that mean? Am I spelling it right? Is it related to work (baara), is there something special to the suffix “ji”?

I ni ce, Serge!

The word you are looking for is baraji (without any tones marked) and you’ll find it in the dictionary here :slight_smile:

It’s not related to “work” and ji isn’t its own special suffix; it is a full word in its own right!

It means ‘divine compensation’ and is frequently used in the expression I ni baraji as a way to say what amounts in many contexts to ‘Thank you very much!’

I ni baraji for this explanation!
