This is a compilation of 1,000 proverbs in Igbo language, each followed by a usable English translation. The author, Onyekachi H. Ibekwe made this compilation after much personal reflection on the remote origins and existential imports of the proverbial mode of communication. Proverbs remain vital and peculiar elements of Igbo traditional religion, daily discourse and contemporary worldview.
Made available on the digital platform, it is the author’s hope that this compilation will serve as a portable, easily navigable reference for anybody that has an interest in the subject matter.
Author: Onyekachi H.Ibekwe;
In this dissertation, Henry Ibekwe calls into question the silently-held presumption that the Latinization (i.e. the use of Latin alphabets in transcription) of indigenous languages in southeastern Nigeria is both necessary and sufficient for their orthography.
The arguments presented herein aim to demonstrate the fact that Latinization has systematically excluded an entire realm of symbols and meanings which facilitate the inter-subjective transfer of ideas; realms that cannot always be navigated by relying upon transcription by way of Latin alphabets.
In order to adequately address several of the weaknesses identified in the Latinized scripts, the author argues for an expanded orthography that is more inclusive and representative of the sociofacts, mentifacts and artifacts that are peculiar to southeastern Nigeria.
