Appréhender et décrire le hlonipha au XIXe et début XXe siècle. Regards sur les représentations coloniales et académiques d’une pratique socio-langagière Nguni (1811-1915).

Abstract : The 19th and 20th centuries knowledge encounter between the colonists and the Nguni people, followed by the Western thinking on their custom, is at the center of this research. More specifically, we focus on the ways in which the Nguni custom called “hlonipha” (en. respect, reverence) has been depicted by colonial agents (travellers, colonial civil officers, missionaries, settlers) in South Africa. Moreover, we are interested in the nearly simultaneous Western academic transposition of this colonial knowledge on hlonipha in philology, linguistics and anthropology theories. We demonstrate that despite the variety of colonial accounts on hlonipha, this sociolinguistic practice has predominantly been depicted as a female-only and linguistic-only custom within Western academic circles.
