È làlò rò  and Translation

È làlò rò , as an indigenous African discourse methodology, presents important frameworks for translation and critical interpretation. In this chapter, I will examine aspects of È làlò rò  that show a translator’s responsibility to their culture and to other important expectations for meaning, originality, and aesthetic initiatives. The chapter will also compare È làlò rò  expectations with certain contemporary theoretical paradigms such as polysystem and postmodern approaches.
