MetadataShow full item record
My study is about how imagery is depicted in the selected Ankole proverbs. To enhance my study, I looked at different types of imagery and that is visual olfactory and tactile images. I deeply examined and analyzed these types of imagery in different selected Ankole proverbs as they are examined in chapter four about data analysis. To make my study very crucial, I used different methods to collect the data, examined it and analyze the data through the method of observation, questionnaire, note taking and interviewing different people especially the elders in Rushere Kiruhura district in Western Uganda. At the end of my study, I concluded by notifying how important imagery is among the Ankole proverbs that I selected. I therefore conclude by urging other scholars and readers to pay attention to my content, read it, examine it the more and understand it for the better use of images in the Ankole proverbs because what has been discovered now and before is not enough and a lot research and emphasis is much needed. The findings of my research are therefore to show how imagery as a topic on its own is very important in the usage and development of the Ankole proverbs. However, it is also of use consider or note that most of the proverbs in the society mostly the Ankole proverbs are is based and constructed on much stylistic devices like similes and metaphors based in types of imagery like visual, olfactory and tactile images and examining the meaning of those images in the Ankole proverbs. The study concludes that the images elicited in the proverbs play a didactic role in the development of meaning in the proverbs and thus enhancing the people’s knowledge of their society and thus peaceful living.
