Noms de personne et expression des ambitions matrimoniales chez les Bwa du Mali

Abstract : This paper deals with nomination in the Bwa society. This is a process that can be understood as a way to express subtle opinions when they cannot be explicitly stated. Taking weeding ceremonies as a case study, we show how the anthropologist open to both the context of nomination and to the identity of the name giver, can reach another dimension of social life, beyond practices and discourses.
