Hope for Resolution (Zulu) diction question
Date: February 13, 2012
I have a quesiton about the Zulu portion of Caldwell & Ivory's "Hope For Resolution.
The word in question is uzokunqobela. I have always taught it with the tongue click AND the "o" following the q being voiced. I have a colleague who learned it as JUST the tongue click and no voiced vowel following.
So is it “oo-zo-kun-(click)-beh-lah” or “oo-zo-kun-(click)o-beh-lah.”
The only evidence I have is a group singing it in a style that sounds more like an '80's worship recording (a la Maranatha) than an anti-apartheid song. Nothing is attributed on the recording, so not sure if it is accurate or not.
If you have an authoritative indication of what it may be, please let me know.
