the language of feminism and its impact to the society: a case study of mariama ba's so long a letter


ABSTRACT

This paper duels on women’s lamentation over male subjugation. Women's lamentation over male subjugation has in recent years filtered into a determination to abnegate sexism. With this stand, their former conciliatory position becomes superseded by a current of revolt against man and tradition as highlighted through semantic compounding and linguistic parallelism in So Long a Letter.
