dc.description.abstract The purpose of this set of dictionary definitions is to give the novice to folklore a place from which to begin. When first picking up the subject of folklore, and all its sub-groups, it is sometimes hard to know where to start. These definitions by no means come close to the complicated meaning of "folklore." However, when used simply as a step up to the subject of folklore, they do serve a purpose.Folklore- popular superstitions or legends; the study of traditional beliefs.Folk- people in general, or as a specified class; one's own family and near relations.Lore- learning, erudition, traditional knowledge.Riddle- enigma; puzzling fact, thing, person.Proverb- a short pithy saying to express a truth or point a moral; an adage. Tale- narrative; story, false report; gossip.Tall- excessive; exaggerated.Ballad- a story in verse, of popular origin, generally patriotic.Lullaby- a song sung to a child to soothe it to sleep.Anecdote- a biographical incident; a brief account of any fact or happening(often amusing).Prose- ordinary language in speech and writing; language not in verse.
