n Indilinga African Journal of Indigenous Knowledge Systems - Language and indigenous conflict management




Language is generally regarded as a mechanism for human communication. It is, in this sense, a linguistic system of communication. It can, therefore, be either written or spoken and conveys meanings that are shared within a speech community. The article exposes the relevance of language as engaged in conflict management by the Yoruba. It also examines the connection between language and conflict management, how language as a communicative tool can and has been employed in the management of conflict among the Yoruba, within the wider context of the African experience
