  5. Now i need help with a word...please???

Now i need help with a word...please??? Lock Rss

Okay all you smart ladies, i'm sitting here finishing an assignment and i need a word to complete this sentence

" Its narrative qualities enable it to be passed from generation to generation using **word of mouth**."

I need the word that means 'word of mouth". I'm talking about Aboriginal Dreamtime and urban myths, and how they are stories told 'orally' rather than ones read.

Please, can someone think of 'the' word????

Dreamtime stories?
Hi!!
hmmm not really sure but what about...

" Its narrative qualities enable it to be passed from generation to generation 'verbally'(sp?)....

Dont know if you would end the sentence there or add more. Dont aboriginals use their didgeridoos(sp?!) as well to tell stories?
what about parol, personal account, speech, spoken communication, spoken word, verbal evidence, viva voce?

How about ....generation to generation through oral expression.
Thanks girls - can't remember what i used now but i finished it and it's been handed in. Thanks for your help
