Oral traditions

From Elävän perinnön wikiluettelo

Oral tradition encapsulates a wide range of forms of cultural presentations, such as proverbs, riddles, stories, nursery rhymes, legends, myths, jokes, songs, poems and spells. With the help of oral traditions and expression, knowledge, cultural and social values, and shared memories can be passed on. Languages and dialects define how stories or poems are told, and also affect their content.
