Mo Dem’ Koo! (Dangme)
- SKU: BK2813
The title of this book Mo Dem’ Koo! means ‘Tell me, please’, but inferringly, it means ‘Ask me how I feel, please’.
It was against social norms for the youngster to greet, but rather appeal to the elderly to ask of his state of health, hence the title which one usually hears in some Dangbe towns in the mornings.
The contents of Mo Dem’ Koo! are an attempt to scratch the surface of and collect some traditional salutations and greetings, as well as a few, simple customs and practices of the Dangme people.
It is a guide to the resourceful teacher who is interested in researching into deeper depths of the contents, in order to get good material for his lesson.
