The meaning of the name Angula

Angula is a language learning app designed to empower people to communicate effectively in African languages. The concept behind Angula was born out of language activism, driven by the desire to promote and preserve African languages.  The name Angula  originates from the Xitsonga language, meaning to  reply , respond , or retort . The name encapsulates the mission of our app which is to enable people to have their say in any African language of their choice.  Amongst Vatsonga, the word angula holds significant relevance and it is frequently used to elicit a response during important discussions. For instance, if Musa claims to possess superior singing abilities compared to you, uttering a ngula is a call for you to defend your honor or to weigh in on the claim. Angula is a verb, its noun forms are angulo or n'wangulo . Official statements about various matters from governments, public officials, and similar entities are called n'wangulo . Another word closely associated
