  • The new media and theatre marketing: an example of the play production of
           Odumegege by Miesoinuma Minima

    • Authors: Friday Nwafor, Oghenero Eyefia Godson
      Abstract: This paper provides alternative means of bringing theatrical performances to the audience using the new media. The parlance that the theatre cannot be without at least an audience makes it necessary for constant review of marketing stratagems in other to cultivate constant audience for the theatre. The paper reveals how online social networking sites are available for marketing products on the internet for the benefit of the theatre. The research adopted the analytical approach in the investigation of the topic. The basic finding of the paper is that the use of the internet has cut up with the world as evident in the patronage of the production of the play Odumegege and therefore recommended the embrace of the new media as a cheaper means yet effective in the marketing of the theatre.

  • Readability of HIV/AIDS information manuals in Ghana

    • Authors: William Kodom Gyasi
      Abstract: his paper examined the readability of some medical information documents for HIV/AIDS patients in Ghana. The SMOG readability formula was used to determine the reading levels of the documents which were obtained through convenience sampling technique. One sample T-test was used to determine whether there were statistically significant differences in the readability of the sampled HIV/AIDS literature compared to a standard 8th grade recommended for public documents. The bootstrapping technique was employed in this evaluation to ensure robust estimates of significant or p-value, standard errors and the confident intervals. The study revealed that the leaflets were generally difficult to comprehend when compared to the standard readability score of public reading materials. The study concluded that it is prudent such documents are written in plane language in order that the target readers would benefit from the information carried by these documents.Key Words: readability, healthcare, HIV/AIDS, SMOG, patients, leaflets

  • Babel of Niger State

    • Authors: A.A Ihenacho, A.M. Jamiu, M.N. Agu, S.A. Ebine, S. Adelabu, E.F. Obi
      Abstract: This paper is a preliminary report on an ongoing research being carried out in the Faculty of Languages and Communication Studies of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Lapai, Niger State, Nigeria. The research is on ‘Language education and translation in Niger State’. The languages involved in the research are: Arabic, English, French, Gbagyi, Hausa and Nupe. The aim of this research which is funded by the Nigerian Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) is ‘to help improve the outcome of language education and translation in Niger State in both quality and quantity’ As a preliminary inquiry, the research team visited 78 institutions of learning at all levels (primary, secondary and tertiary) in all the three geopolitical zones of Niger State, as well as media houses located in the capital, Minna, and obtained responses to the questionnaires they took to the institutions. While pursuing the aim and objectives of their main research, the team deemed it necessary to consider the position (and the plight) of the multiplicity of other languages of Niger State (than the three major ones – Gbagyi, Hausa and Nupe) in relation to Nigeria’s language policy in education. The team found that there are conflicting reports on these languages with regard to their exact number, their location, their status, and even their spelling. The team learned that there are at least 38 languages in Niger State, some of which have several dialects as well. This side-line research concluded, therefore, that it would be a tall order to insist on implementing certain aspects of the national language policy in education in respect of the users of these languages, some of whom do not even speak Hausa, the most widely spread of the three major indigenous languages in the State. This research recommended, therefore, that the Niger State Government should consider establishing a language policy, and drawing up a specific plan, that will enable it to implement relevant aspects of the national language policy in education.Key Words: Languages, Niger State, Language policy, Education

  • The sociolinguistic dilemma of the English language users in Nigeria:
           Issues in societal multilingualism

    • Authors: Nneka Umera-Okeke
      Abstract: The Nigerian linguistic society is purely pluralistic. Though conflicting records exist about the number of indigenous languages, it is estimated to be about 500. The need for interaction, and the absence of a national language have made it that every Nigerian is either a bilingual or a multilingual. In every multilingual society, there are particular norms and literal codes which are understood by people of the same shared cultural background in spite of the different codes and there is often a prestige given to one language over others either by its functions or status. In using a prestige language like English in Nigeria, speakers despite their level of competence are faced with the dilemma of linguistic choices. They make choices to fit each purpose; these choices are influenced by certain factors. Faced with the myriad of languages, the Nigerian users of English are confronted with the social, psychological and linguistic dilemma of the speech community. The paper therefore examined the sociolinguistics dilemma of the Nigerian users of English vis a viz uncertainty over choice of code and variety, language attitude, challenges with code mixing/code switching and concern over interference. Key Words: sociolinguistic dilemma, multilingualism, code-mixing/switching, interference, second language user

  • Aspect: An element of INFL phrase in Igbo syntax

    • Authors: Christiana Ngozi Ikegwuonu
      Abstract: This paper examined aspect as an element of INFL phrase in Igbo, the verb forms use in expressing aspect, their inflectional patterns, how they are marked and their tonal behaviours. The work adopted a descriptive method in the analysis of the data. It identified different verb forms, participle verb forms and inflectional affixes used in expressing aspect in Igbo language. The inflectional affixes are bound morphemes which are overtly morphologically marked on the verb stems in the syntactic structures. The aspectual markers are hosted by the verb stems with their distinctive tones. A verb form can mark two aspects simultaneously in the syntactic structures. The auxiliaries na and ga are employed in expressing progressive and habitual aspects. Ga is also used to express future and perfective aspects. The presence of the obligatory harmonizing vowel prefix a-/e- is significant in the participle verb forms which are used in expressing aspects in Igbo. The aspectual markers and the auxiliaries which mark aspects in Igbo are dominated in INFL phrase. Tone plays vital role in Igbo aspects. The rule of vowel harmony was also observed.

  • Congruent proverbs: The concept and roles in conflict resolution

    • Authors: Oyebanji Anthony Olajuyin
      Abstract: Over the years, the Yorùbá has successfully employed proverbs to manage conflicts and discords among her populace. Many of these proverbs are conceptually and contextually congruent. The goal of this work is to draw attention to, and improve the knowledge of congruent proverbs using the proverbs of conflict resolution as the subject markers. The elders perceived by the Yorùbá to be the custodians of indigenous proverbs were consulted for conflict-resolving proverbs, their interpretation and implications. The interpretations and implications were. subjected to simple statistical analysis. Thirty proverbs that met the inclusion criteria were selected for the study. The analysis showed that two or more proverbs may be semantically congruent. The paper concluded that knowledge of the congruent proverbs could facilitate a recall of proverbial expressions, allows flexibility of use, enables complementary usage, provides a substitution, prevents monotony, allows smooth expression of thoughts, reinforces ideas, improves potency of speech and in effect, achieves the desired goal of peacemaking in African setting.Key Words: Congruent proverbs; Concept; Conflict resolution; Knowledge of

  • Defence et illustration de la poesie labeenne: Le sonnet XVIII

    • Authors: Yuqiu Meng
      Abstract: Le présent article lit le sonnet XVIII comme une véritable défence et illustration de la poésie labéenne, qui cherche et réussit à se donner une voix poétique et une subjectivité féminine, en faisant de la femme un sujet aimant, désirant et parlant. L’analyse démontre comment le poème de Labé renverse les fondations de la poésie d’amour de son temps, transgressant à la fois les conventions du lyrisme pétrarquien fondé sur l’inaccessibilité de l’amour, et la conception néoplatonicienne qui recherche avant tout la Beauté abstraite. L’examen porte ensuite sur la virtuosité stylistique et technique du sonnet, se concentrant sur la façon dont la poète a signé son nom dans sa pièce majeure.Mots-clés : Labé, poésie féminine, subjectivité féminine.

  • La poetique du stiwanisme : Une lecture d’ada d’Omonigho

    • Authors: Chinwe Jane Okolo
      Abstract: La théorie du stiwanisme était proposée par Molara Ogundipe-Leslie en 1994. C’est une des théories conçues par les théoriciennes africaines dans le sillage du débat sur les modèles émergents du féminisme africain dont l’objet est la justice du genre. Avec le stiwanisme, le genre féminin africain retrouve sa place dans la société où elle a ses rôles dans le développement voire la transformation de la société. Notre étude consiste d’une lecture d’Ada de Stella Onome Omonigho en vue de voir dans quelle mesure le stiwanisme s’y inscrit. Nous avons constaté que le stiwanisme s’inscrit dans la pièce à travers les actions et les discours du protagoniste Ada et ses adjuvants. Les discours et les actions d’Ada semblent un appel au genre féminin de se secouer, de se réveiller, de rejeter les fausses idées à l’égard du genre féminin, d’ajouter de la valeur à son propre genre avec l’éducation pour pouvoir contribuer dans le développement, voire la transformation sociale. La transformation sociale témoignée à la fin de la pièce se réalise avec l’action collaborative des personnages du genre masculin et celle des personnages du genre féminin. La pièce fait preuve du stiwanisme comme un modèle du féminisme valide pour la transformation sociale en Afrique.Mots-Clés : Stiwanisme, Féminisme, éducation, jeune fille, mariage précoce

  • When culture equals femicide: ‘affluent polygyny’ a South
           African dilemma

    • Authors: Evangeline Bonisiwe Zungu
      Abstract: Polygyny is still prevalent in South Africa though the country is ravished by the AIDS pandemic. This article aims to highlight the effects of affluent polygyny on South African women. The findings were very much indicative of the dangers of entering into these arrangements because of socio-economic issues and the high rate of unemployment. This dependency causes women to agree to marry already married men for financial stability. Postcolonial feminist scholarship advanced by black women who were subjected recolonization as their ideas and concepts is the theoretical underpinning for this paper. This theory highlights the complexity of marginalisation of women in affluent polygyny in a previously colonised country. The article asserts that postcolonial feminist theory provides a further understanding of how women suffer at the hands of polygynists. The theory of Gender and Power is also used to understand the gendered relations of affluent polygyny in contemporary times because in African traditional societies, polygyny is perceived as a sociological issue.Key words: polygyny, postcolonial feminist theory, affluence, HIV/AIDS, gender and power

  • Post-Colonialism as a tool for cultural assertion and language identity: A
           study of Ifeoma Chinwuba’s merchants of flesh

    • Authors: Chris K. Ukande, Carmel Aseer Igba-Luga
      Abstract: Africa’s contact with colonialism has brought about effects that are grievous in themselves. These effects have affected the socio-political and cultural life of the African people, to an extent that the true culture and identity of Africans have been thrown to the mongrels, if not gone into a total extinction. On the strength of the above premise, African writers, particularly African post-colonial writers, have been looking for ways to curb the effects of colonialism on the continent of Africa. One of such ways is a process of using post-colonialism as a tool for the investigation and the emancipation of the cultural traits of the African people from complete colonial gridlock, even though colonialism has come and gone. Post-colonialism therefore, gives voice to the once colonised people and also helps for a better appreciation of the cultures and identities of Africa by both the colonised and the coloniser. In discussing Ifeoma Chinwuba’s Merchants of Flesh from a post-colonial standpoint, the paper uses the postcolonial parameters of appropriation, abrogation, hybridity untranslated words and affiliation as the basis for analysis. The paper therefore, concludes that before Africa’s contact with colonialism, it has had its well-established ways of conducting its affairs for the benefit of its people, and that their cultures and identities that make them distinct from other people of the world, be respected and be allowed to flourish ad infinitum.Key words: Post-Colonialism, Cultural Assertion, Language, Language Identity

  • Lesbianism in Nigerian literature: An appraisal of Ozioma Nduka’s
           “caught in the act”

    • Authors: Mbanefo S. Ogene
      Abstract: Lesbianism was until recently identified as a taboo in Nigeria and also an ignominious act which no one ever dared to mention or extol in a literary work. The public identified it as queer or obscene behaviour in writing but with the advent of post colonialism, with such movements as feminism and psychoanalysis, the reasoning pattern among Nigerian female writers changed culminating in writings discussing lesbian life and problems. This study explores lesbianism in the short story as a subgenre that delved into the lesbian life, prospects and problems. It observes that lesbianism has started manifesting in Nigerian literature even though there are still major challenges facing this subgenre of literature.Key Words: Lesbianism, lesbian literature, Nigerian literature, post colonialism

  • Revolutionary consciousness in Ousmane Sembene’s God’s bits of

    • Authors: Tambari Ogbonanwii Dick
      Abstract: The contemporary African novelist has accepted the responsibility of projecting the realism of a world torn by class antagonism and inequalities in access to property. The revolutionary literary work of art is a depiction of the contradictions inherent in a world dominated by class structure and capitalist exploitation in which so much is expected from the working class in exchange for so little. Unlike the traditional African characters portrayed in pre-colonial novels in Achebe’s Things Fall Apart and Arrow of God, who are easily broken up due to lack of solidarity, Sembene demonstrates in God’s Bits of Wood the emergence of a new African labour force committed to a cause, the cause of economic and social liberation.Key Words: solidarity, revolutionary, capitalism, Marxism
