Igbo Proverbs: a Compilation: Omenala

126 pages2 hours


This is a compilation of 1,000 proverbs in Igbo language, each followed by a usable English translation. I decided to make 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 my hope that this compilation will serve as a portable, easily navigable reference for anybody that has an interest in the subject matter.
