Linguistic Metaphor and Ideology in Esiaba Irobi’s Nwokedi and Cemetery Road

Linguistic Metaphor and Ideology in Esiaba Irobi’s Nwokedi and Cemetery Road

Uploaded by Joy Chidinma Awa

Studies on Esiaba Irobi's Nwokedi and Cemetery Road have largely focused on the portrayal of politicians in modern societies. The studies have however neglected how linguistic metaphors have been utilised in realising ideologies. This is the gap the present study is set to fill using extracts from Nwokedi and Cemetery Road, which were analysed using insights from George Lakoff and Mark Johnson’s Conceptual Metaphor Theory and Teun Van Dijk's Theory of Ideology. The texts were subjected to quantitative analysis through the use of tables, frequency counts, and histograms. Five conceptual mappings: POLITICS IS A CONFLICT, POLITICS IS A SMALL CHILD, CHANGE IS A DIFFICULT PATH, POLITICS IS A BUILDING, and POLITICS IS A BODY, were observed from the linguistic metaphors, and their linguistic patterns, (lexical, morphological, and syntactical patterns), which project three ideologies: liberalism, progressivism, and radicalism. POLITICS IS A CONFLICT, and POLITICS IS A SMALL CHILD conceptual mappings are associated with liberalism, CHANGE IS A DIFFICULT PATH is associated with progressivism, while POLITICS IS A BUILDING, and POLITICS IS A BODY relate to radicalism. Thus, cross-domain mappings in Nwokedi and Cemetery Road, deployed through linguistic metaphors are motivated by the playwright’s ideological representation of Nwokedi and Mazeli as liberal, progressive, and radical ideologists.

Everyone knows William Shakespeare, but Shakespeare was just one of many great writers working during the English Renaissance, a period of great art and literature lasting from the late 15th to the early 17th century. Many of the best writers of the periods were, like Shakespeare, playwrights who wrote their work to be performed. And one of the best, and most notorious, of Shakespeare's contemporaries was John Webster, famous playwright of the English Renaissance.

Minds as Tabula Rasa at Birth: Case Studies on Attention in Africa Neonates

Minds as Tabula Rasa at Birth: Case Studies on Attention in Africa Neonates

Uploaded by Joy Ugwu

Abstract John Locke's (1632-1704) concept of tabula rasa of the mind of the newborn baby implies that the newborn only achieves knowledge of what is good or bad, likes or dislikes, or -what he/she needs, as a result of experience after birth; that at birth such abilities are absent. In this paper, we present three case studies on newborn babies studied from birth to age 2-weeks for their ability to pay selective attention to events or things that seem to reflect their abilities to appreciate a need or beauty. These abilities include locating the source of food, attracting caregiver's attention to their needs and following the movement of beautiful objects but ignore less beautiful ones. We conclude that it is not only through experience after birth that the child's mind is formed: that the mind is already occupied and functional at birth.

A Million Miles Away Biography of Emmanuel O Elayo

A Million Miles Away Biography of Emmanuel O Elayo

Uploaded by ABOKI ASSOCIATES

In life as grown-ups, we know that it is pertinent to emulate particular attributes that point to bravery and greatness. A stance we have sincerely maintained as a principle, believing also in its worth thus, that it shall be one of the greatest treasures that we would leave behind when we are finally gone. Significant of these attributes is the fact that it is life when we are no longer here, for only our good or bad deeds count as our legacies, when we would have departed this tough world for our ancestral sweet home - Heaven. A principle which also gave birth to this work, A Million Miles Away. About six years ago (17th October, 2003), the 33rd Osana of Keana kingdom was enthroned, an event which opened the gate way to the entire society to say what they deemed fit on the personality involved, Senator Sir Emmanuel Onyatikpo Elayo. A Million Miles Away is one of those works, adapting its unique dimension. It is basically an academic searchlight that beams all through the tunnels of the life events of the personality in his over seven decades in this world. Perhaps for the authors, the Philanthropic and Magnanimous qualities of the personality in question captured their interest in him. As such, it then behoved on us that no matter how much it rains on a leopard its beautiful spots do not wash away, rather they get brighter. And so like the leopard’s spots, it is also difficult to erase the ink when it has been printed on the slates.
