DYNAMICS OF INDIGENOUS LANGUAGE IN
Lagos Papers in English Studies, 1 (1).
The seriousness of environmental issue has been brought to the
fore, not only because of its significance to human sustainability
but also due to its degeneration to communal conflicts, as well as
emergence of miscreants and hoodlums who find expression of
their destructive tendencies in environmental problems. This
paper calls for a reappraisal of method of communicating
environmental messages in particular reference to the language of communication. It begins with identification of environmental problems, the goal that environmental communication is meant to achieve and the inappropriateness of the English language packaged messages to achieving the goals. It stresses the significance of indigenous language use in communicating environmental massages and rounds off with examples of indigenous language communication.
