Abstract or Summary
  • With over 800 languages spoken on the continent of Africa, inter-cultural communication has always been difficult. In addition, many of the peoples of Africa have experienced colonial oppression. Various powers have sought to interfere with intra-cultural dialogues and the free flow of information. Their effectiveness, however, was limited because of the talking drums. These drums are speech surrogates. Messages are relayed on them in a codal form. This form is based on the tonal language of the specific speech community. The premise of this paper is that the form is a. language. The language is poetic in style, but restrictive in nature. It can be analyzed and components of various speech events can be investigated. With this information, one can better understand how a speech community categorizes its experiences.
