READERS’ PERCEPTION ON THE USE OF INDIGENOUS LANGUAGE IN NIGERIA PRINT MEDIA

CHAPTER ONE

1.0       Introduction

1.1       Background of the Study

            The Longman Dictionary of contemporary English (1985), defines languages as “the system of expression by means of word” a particular system of word as used by a people or nation or “a system of signs, movements and so on used to express meanings or feelings” or “a particular style or manner of expression such as in poetic language”.

            Language can also be defined as “a communicative system consisting of formal unit that are integrated through processes of combination”. Bonvillain, (2000). On his part, Omojuyigbe (2004) describes language as “a series of sounds strung together in groups to convey meanings to listeners”. From the various definition of language, one can infer that language is an integral part of human behavior and it serves as the primary means of interaction between people. Continue reading

ORIGIN, NATURE, PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS OF YORUBA AND YORUBA LANGUAGE NEWSPAPERS

INTRODUCTION

Communication is an inevitable phenomenon in any community of living things, be they human or not. Dare (1985) attempts a review of a popular saying credited to Aristotle by saying that: Communication is the fundamental social process and man in society is not basically a political animal as Aristotle held, but a communicating animal; for politics, like every other activity in society, is based on communication.

In essence, man, in any society cannot not communicate. Meanwhile, communication in modern societies has gone beyond the interpersonal or a situation where participants in a communication event come together flesh and blood. The vastness and heterogeneity of the modern society has made this impracticable. The invention of printing and the emergence of broadcast technology have made mass communication possible in modern society. And, without any gain saying, the media of mass communication have played tremendous roles in the education, information, entertainment and socialization of man.

Schramn (1964), for instance, notes that since the development of printing, the printed media have become tools of political and social change. Faure (1972) adds: The role, which the mass media play in the transmission of information and culture, is generally beyond question. The credo of the Chicago Tribune talks of the mass media as: An institution developed by modern civilisation to present the news of the day, to foster commerce and industry, to inform and lead public opinion and to furnish that check upon government which no constitution has been able to provide.

In fact, Blackely (1973) sees mass media as the life wire of society, the social neural system on which the new capabilities of science and technology rest. If we agree that mass media are indispensable to our political and social change, we, therefore, need to address our minds to the necessity for the popularization of this change and design of messages that are culturally sensitive, language specific and in tune with the social realities of our people.

Salawu, (2001) contends that the language in which a (development) message would be disseminated is a very important aspect of the message treatment. Nwuneli (1986: 203) posits that the indigenous language of a community is the best suited for the purpose of conveying any message, whatsoever, to the said community.

NIGERIAN NEWSPAPERS AND THE COVERAGE OF HUMAN RIGHT

CHAPTER ONE

1.0    Introduction

1.1    Background to the study

          Philip Klapt (2002). Observes that during the 1990s, human rights issues became more prominent, both in public policy and public opinion. Many governments officially incorporated human rights principles in their policy frameworks, with legal implications. Many international institutions (notably the United Nations agencies) ‘mainstreamed’ human rights.

             The media reflected this upsurge of interest in its coverage of human rights stories. Today the mass media make reference to human rights in their coverage more often and more systematically. Continue reading

ASSESSMENT OF THE ROLE OF THE MEDIA IN ANTI CORRUPTION CAMPAIGN

CHAPTER ONE

1.0    INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

           Nigeria has become a country playing host to the victory of wrong over light, falsehood over the truth and supremacy of personal irresponsibility over fundamental values. It is a country perpetuating a policy that fails to value human life and cherish human beings above material possession, power and pleasures; it is a place where men and women of honour, experience, credibility and self-consciousness have been cut their prime for daring to talk. It is a place where crooks are not protected by the powers that be and where leaders are not determined by the citizens. Votes without doubt, Nigeria is breeding fraud of corruption.
