The Anthropology of Medicine: From Culture to Method

By Lola Romanucci-Ross; Daniel E. Moerman et al. | Go to book overview
a new village to attract residents and to keep them content in staying. Cunnison ( 1956) has described these among southern Tabwa along the Luapula.

In a paper entitled " 'Sinister Caricatures': 'Cannibalism' Among Belgians and Africans in the Congo, the Kazanzi society among colonized and the Mitumbula among colonizers was contrasted as to political history and essence (see Roberts 1993).
10.
Van Acker 1907:54; Van Avermaet and Mbuya 1954:533-34; White Fathers 1954:619; Kajiga 1975:611; Johnson 1971:384. In KiTabwa-ponda can also mean "to insult, to dance fast"; muponda is the wild dog, Lycaon pictus, and kiponda a "night thief," according to Van Acker. In both KiLuba and CiBemba (which in turn are closely related to KiTabwa), derivatives refer to rebellion, insurrection, and the "underground" (maquis).
11.
Not coincidentally, Tabwa and others in the area used to create a din when the moon was "eaten" during eclipse. See Heusch 1972:72-82, for an elegant discussion of how this is an action to "separate the sky and the earth," to maintain the discrete nature of cosmic principles.
12.
I rely here upon J. David Sapir Anatomy of Metaphor ( 1977), in which he holds that "metaphor states an equivalence between terms taken from separate domains"; "metonymy replaces or juxtaposes contiguous terms that occupy a distinct and separate place within what is considered a single semantic or perceptual domain"; and "synecdoche, like metonymy, draws its terms from a single domain; however, one term always includes or is included by the other" (p. 4). Figure 10.1 is also derived from his (p. 20).
13.
The place and meaning of invocation in the Tabwa medical process, as well as the usefulness of the rhetorical analogy in the explication of the process, will be expounded upon in the writings of C. D. Roberts.
