Abstract
This paper explains how language is used as knowledge and communication in
the light of cultural phenomena in the Beti culture, more specifically, the relation
existing between Beti people and nature, cultural realities as lived in forests and
villages, and fusion with nature. It also explains why the European foreigners
wrongly categorized the Beti ethnic group as a non hierarchical society, thus
causing prejudices and misunderstandings about the Beti culture. It is written in the
framework of linguistics anthropology that deals with the study of language as a
cultural practice.
