Abstract


Human language began with oral expression. Living amidst the bounties of Mother
Earth in the lap of Nature human beings learnt to converse in their own ways as
diverse as their habitats. The languages grew in the form of sounds as people used
these sounds for expressing various feelings, ideas and thoughts. Script came very
late in human history. Even after that several communities continued to follow the
oral tradition in their speech and also in composition of their tales, songs, proverbs,
sayings, quizzes and puzzles etc. The folklore comprises primarily of the oral literature
spread not only across India but across the world especially among the indigenous
people.
