Omiano vya Tjipangandjara

Otjiherero Proverbs and Idioms

Jekura Uaurika Kavari

Publication Year: 2013

Omiano vya Tjipangandjara: Otjiherero Proverbs and Idioms is a unique collection of linguistic and cultural significance. The author has collected over 150 proverbs and idioms from the Ovaherero community, particularly the Ovakaoko, in Namibia, and from various written sources. He encourages the use of these proverbs as a means of cultural enrichment, since younger speakers of Otjiherero tend to use and/or translate English or Afrikaans proverbs. Concise and extensively researched, this book distinguishes between proverbs and idioms; gives the literal English translation; the origin; general meaning; context; usage; and English equivalents.
