I have seen many way of spelling "Cetshwayo" & "Isandlwana" Here's a few..

ISANDLWANA
ISANDHLWANA
ISANDULA

CETEWAYO
CETSHWAYO
CETYWAYO

Im fairly sure the Zulu would not have used these spellings, and the spellings would have been instigated by Europeans. But what is the correct way to spell these words.

I would assume the correct spellings his how those who were in Zululand in 1879 spelt them. I believe the troops spelt Isandlwana with an (H) ISANDHLWANA.

The Zulu King learned to spell his name in this way, the Zulu sound, more accuratley represented by tshwa, tshwe, tshwi,&c.,having for many years been spelt tywa, tywe,tywi,&c., By Zulu Scholars.

Quote from Ian Knight in the introduction to Through the Zulu Country by Bertram Mitford.

In the 1940s Zulu was scientifically codified as a language and adjustments made to a number of spellings, Isandlwana ( new spelling) being a notable case.

During the war the British troops liked to call the Zulu chief ' Catch-away-o'. Gingindlovu was christened ' Gin Gin I love you".

PostSubject: Re: Cetshwayo / Isandlwana Correct spelling   Cetshwayo / Isandlwana Correct spelling EmptyWed Dec 08, 2010 6:44 pm

Hi All

The Zulu language, isiZulu, operates a noun class prefix system so, technically, the correct spelling is 'iSandlwana' (the lower case 'i' being the appropriate prefix in this case). In some cases I have seen the prefix dropped in written translation leaving, simply, 'Sandlwana'.

As regards the question of whether it should properly be "dhl" or "dl" in the middle, and in addition to the 1940s review mentioned by Springbok9 above, I think the confusion is (or rather, was,) probably down to the similarity in form of the isiZulu consonants, "hl" and "dl". The former being very similar in pronunciation to the latter when prefixed by "d" as in the case of "Isandhlwana". The "h" does appear to have become silent over the years which presumably was the reason for it being dropped in the written form.

In respect of the King, then 'Cetshwayo' appears to be the accepted form and is how it appears in the 1922 (translated) work by Zulu, Magema M. Fuze. Pronunciation wise, it is interesting to note that the letter 'c' is one of the isiZulu 'click' sounds (a bit like 'tut' in our 'tut tut') while the 'tsh' is a consonant similar to our "ch' in 'church' (the best way I have seen it described). Bearing this in mind, it is perhaps easy to see why the early Europeans, in particular, had difficulty settling on a standard form. However, having said all that, I have seen a copy of the King's signature where he signed himself 'Cetywayo'; indeed, this is how Norris-Newman (and also Moodie) refer to him in contemporary accounts of the AZW.

So, no straightforward answer it seems but at least we all know who, and what, we mean! My brain's hurting now so I'm off for a cup of tea and a lie down. Meantime, hope this is of some help.

U

Absolutely true Springbok9 - am currently under pressure to finish packing for an imminent trip "down under' for Xmas and the New Year. Excess baggage is proving to be a bit of a problem - but think I would feel guilty if I didn't take Mrs U along too! :lol:

Seriously though, as I will be away from the computer for a while, can I just take this opportunity to wish all Forum Members a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'm relatively new to this Forum but have really enjoyed participating over the past few months. It's been both informative and good fun - so thanks folks.

Have a good one!

Best

Hi Chaps
Presently in a wi fi bar in downtown Kowloon sipping cocktails with a leggy blonde (Mrs U - but cocktails working wonders!) on route for Melbourne tomorrow. No cricket for me unless I Can catch the Melbourne test for a day. But anyway - seen England snatch defeat from the jaws of victory too many times at all sports to get over confident yet! Ha!
Thanks for all your good wishes!

Well I'm going with Umbiki on the spellings. The original Q is settled then is it?

On the subject of pronounciations, could Umbiki please spell the names for us phonetically, so we can all pronounce them correctly too?

Tasker224

PS - when i was at school, we pronounced Niger as "nij a"; now it seems the BBC has decreed it be pronounced "nee zhair"; a few more examples of the BBC's know it all pronounciations: Newcastle must now be pronounced New CASSSel, the Himalayas as "himaarliers", the capital of Switzerland is now "Baasel", Peking is now Beijing, Bombay/ Mumbai, Baghdad to BACCHHdad, President Ahmedinejad has become "Acchhmedinejad".......need i go on? And before anyone suggests local pronounciation, should we now be calling Paris "Parree",
New Zealand "New Zilland" and Cardiff "Cairdiff"?

The word “Niger” in the above post is by no means directed in a defamatory way. It is merely for the purpose for which the original topic was posted correct spellings/ and those spellings used in other localities around the world.

Hi All

The Zulu language, isiZulu, operates a noun class prefix system so, technically, the correct spelling is 'iSandlwana' (the lower case 'i' being the appropriate prefix in this case). In some cases I have seen the prefix dropped in written translation leaving, simply, 'Sandlwana'.

As regards the question of whether it should properly be "dhl" or "dl" in the middle, and in addition to the 1940s review mentioned by Springbok9 above, I think the confusion is (or rather, was,) probably down to the similarity in form of the isiZulu consonants, "hl" and "dl". The former being very similar in pronunciation to the latter when prefixed by "d" as in the case of "Isandhlwana". The "h" does appear to have become silent over the years which presumably was the reason for it being dropped in the written form.

In respect of the King, then 'Cetshwayo' appears to be the accepted form and is how it appears in the 1922 (translated) work by Zulu, Magema M. Fuze. Pronunciation wise, it is interesting to note that the letter 'c' is one of the isiZulu 'click' sounds (a bit like 'tut' in our 'tut tut') while the 'tsh' is a consonant similar to our "ch' in 'church' (the best way I have seen it described). Bearing this in mind, it is perhaps easy to see why the early Europeans, in particular, had difficulty settling on a standard form. However, having said all that, I have seen a copy of the King's signature where he signed himself 'Cetywayo'; indeed, this is how Norris-Newman (and also Moodie) refer to him in contemporary accounts of the AZW.

So, no straightforward answer it seems but at least we all know who, and what, we mean! My brain's hurting now so I'm off for a cup of tea and a lie down. Meantime, hope this is of some help.

Apologies, to Umbiki, the language is isiZulu
