Abstract

This brief paper examines, from the point of view of ethnography, how the African proverbs selected from the Niger Delta of Nigeria have been used in fostering intergenerational relationships discourse in a globalizing world. This discussion adopts the ethnographic approach in exploring the meaning and functions aims, structures and the delivery modes of African proverbs used in intergenerational relationships as our peoples struggle with the threat to the erosion of some of the major positive artefacts in our culture. It concludes by synthesizing contemporary challenges seemingly minimizing the overall use and impacts of African proverbs in intergenerational relationships, and suggesting the possible implications of the discussion for networking regionally and globally.
