A Jamaican Patois
term used to describe a library
. The word library has negative connotations because it 'begins with a lie'
. It is believed that this is an attempt to keep knowledge
from the Rastafarian
s in an effort to keep them ignorant of the world.
While I don't necessarily believe the latter I do find the word incredibly evocative and powerful, I have used it with pride ever since it became part of my vocabulary. However in my efforts to node this I only found one reference on the web and that was in Russian!
