Abstract: It is commonly assumed, not without reason that literature is the total patterning of a culture. Culture, literature and language are interwoven and cannot be totally separated. They depend on one another. Literature depends on language which is intrinsic to the culture. To be a competent user of a language entails knowledge of the socio-cultural habits of the owners of that language. Adeyeye (2002, 2) opines that, it’s a well-known fact that the language of a community is a repository and transmitter of the culture, values, social habits and world- vision of that society.
