Transcript of Philippine Literature: Folk Speech

Folk speech
refers to the dialect, or style of speaking, unique to people living within a geographic area. The folk speech of an area may be differentiated from other regions by variation in grammatical, phonetic (pronunciation), and lexical (word usage) features.

- Popular language; the dialect spoken by the common people of a country or district, as distinguished from the speech of the educated people or from the literary language.

Folk Speech: Riddles
Folk Speech: Proverbs
Philippine proverbs
are traditional sayings or maxims used by Filipinos based on local culture, wisdom, and philosophies from Filipino life. The word proverb corresponds to the Tagalog words salawikain,kasabihan (saying) and sawikain.

- Philippine proverbs are further illustrated to be ornaments to language, words of ancestors handed down from one generation to another, and as wisdom gained from experience, which can be quoted to express a sentiment, a statement, or an opinion.

- Filipino proverbs echoes the Filipino values, even though they have been retold and passed from one generation to another, the values and the lessons they impart to us still holds truth to these days.
Folk Speech: Riddles
The riddle (bugtong)
is a form of guessing game that has been a part of the folklore of most cultures from ancient times.

- a mystifying, misleading, or puzzling question posed as a problem to be solved or guessed.

- When told in the native Tagalong language, the riddles employ many poetic devices. They usually rhyme and they often rely on simile and metaphor to offer clues. The riddles tend to be one or two lines and refer to a specific object.
