Abstract:

What can oral poetic traditions teach us about language and the human mind?
Oral Poetics has produced insights relevant not only for the study of
traditional poetry, but also for our general understanding of language and
cognition: formulaic style as a product of rehearsed improvisation, the
thematic structuring of traditional narratives, or the poetic use of features
from everyday speech, among many others. The cognitive sciences have developed
frameworks that are crucial for research on oral poetics, such as construction
grammar or conversation analysis. The key for connecting the two disciplines
is their common focus on usage and performance. This collection of papers
explores how some of the latest research on language and cognition can
contribute to advances in oral studies. At the same time, it shows how
research on verbal art in its natural, oral medium can lead to new insights in
semantics, pragmatics, or multimodal communication. The ultimate goal is to
pave the way towards a Cognitive Oral Poetics, a new interdisciplinary field
for the study or oral poetry as a window to the mind.
