Description
Theory of Orality 1. Oral Cultures are additive rather than subordinate a) Subordinate: One idea has to be primary, other idea is secondary (if it is raining, then it is wet) b) Here, things are added without the connections (we did this and this and this and this…) 2. Oral Cultures are more aggregative than analytic a) Tendency to connect ideas together 3. Oral Cultures rely on Redundancy (or copiousness) a) Repeating ideas more effective b) Language disappear quickly so redundancy increases memory 4. Oral Cultures are Conservative or Tradition a) Rely on information from a great deal of time ago b) Hold onto things and don’t let them go
