MTUMANE, Z.. Dialogue in S. A. Dazela's Izono zakho ziya kukujikela. Tydskr. letterkd. [online]. 2010, vol.47, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 2309-9070.

This article investigates the use of dialogue in the depiction of the main character, Mpumlo's personality traits in S. A. Dazela's novel, Izono zakho ziya kukujikela ("Your sins will turn against you", 1991). Mpumlo is the lead character in the novel. The aspects of Mpumlo's personality, as depicted through dialogue, that feature prominently in the novel, include his kindness and humaneness, caring, being a liar, dangerousness, jealousy, cruelty, sarcasm, irresponsibility, cheating, rudeness and disrespect. All these traits will be highlighted. A discussion is also presented of the concepts of dialogue and personality in general and of Mpumlo's personality traits in particular.
