Abstract:The aim of this article is to present some examples of these types of oral literature - epigrams, tongue-twisters, and chain-rhymes - which were recorded, along with many more riddles and proverbs, in the course of linguistic research during a recent tour of the Fula-speaking areas of West-Africa, and to consider their relations to proverbs and riddles.
