Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


The !kóroken-!kóroken (Telophonus . . .) must not be mocked by the Bushman children. The result of so doing described. In the Katkop dialect, by Díä!kwãin (L V.-25. 6014-6024). The !kóroken-!kóroken is said also to know what is passing at a distance, and to come and tell things to the Bushmen. Partly in English after and partly in Bushman (L V.-25. 6021 rev. and 6022 rev.). It comes and tells people the bad things it knows about. It tries to make people understand what it is telling by coming to them again. According to Dia!kwain there are many stories about it.
