themselves understand very clearly the meaning of these metaphors and they call
them 'tsai yoshtoyoshto', literally "language-twisting-twisting."
Graham Townsley translates this expression as "twisted language."
The word 'twist' has the
same root as 'two' and 'twin'. 'Twisted' means, technically, "double
and wrapped around itself."
Why do Yaminahua shamans
talk in twisted language? According to one of them: "With my
koshuiti I want to see - singing, I carefully examine things - twisted
language brings me close but not too close - with normal words I would
crash into things - with twisted ones I circle around them - I can see
them clearly. "
For Townsley, all shamanic relations with the spirits
are "deliberately constructed in an elliptical and multi-referential fashion
so as to mirror the refractory nature of the beings who are their objects."
He concludes: "Yoshi
beings who are both 'like and not like' the things they animate.
They have no stable or unitary nature and thus, paradoxically, the 'seeing
as' of 'twisted language' is the only way of adequately describing them.
Metaphor here is not improper naming but the only proper naming possible."
