  • Editor's Column
    • Abstract: With this volume, "Parallelism in Verbal Art and Performance," prepared under the direction of guest editors Frog and Lotte Tarkka, Oral Tradition accommodates a baker's dozen plus one explorations into a technique for holding in poetic consciousness two or more complementaries of several different orders. The standard modus operandi of this column is to introduce by way of brief summaries, specific articles and how they stand in relation to one another. Frog and Lotte Tarkka's nearly exhaustive "Introduction," however, relieves me of the task, and affords me the opportunity to reflect on one aspect of the poetic experience that parallelism conjures: the apperceptive stilling of the successive advance of time, or ...

  • Parallelism in Verbal Art and Performance: An Introduction
    • Abstract: Parallelism1 has been considered a fundamental feature of artistic expression. Robert Lowth (1753:180) coined the term parallelismus membrorum ("parallelism of members") to describe a variety of different types of equivalence or resemblance that he observed between verses in Biblical Hebrew. Lowth's study is in many respects the foundation of research on parallelism,2 although his terminology only began to spread across the nineteenth century. The concept expanded considerably during the twentieth century, especially through the far-reaching influences of Roman Jakobson. From early in his career, Jakobson looked at parallelism as an abstract text-structuring principle of "le rapprochement de deux unités" (Jakobson ... Read More

  • Remembering and Recreating Origins: The Transformation of a Tradition of
           Canonical Parallelism among the Rotenese of Eastern Indonesia
    • Abstract: I have been studying an oral tradition of strict canonical parallelism intermittently for nearly half a century. I began my research on this oral tradition based on the island of Rote in eastern Indonesia in 1965, and have continued these efforts, now with greater urgency, to the present. I have also been investigating issues in comparative parallelism for roughly the same period of time. In 2014 I published Explorations in Semantic Parallelism, which marked an important stage in this research. This volume is a collection of papers both new and old. For example, I reprinted my first survey of the field in 1977 published in honor of Roman Jakobson together with a longer paper on the "trajectory" of subsequent and ... Read More

  • "Word upon a Word": Parallelism, Meaning, and Emergent Structure in
           Kalevala-meter Poetry
    • Abstract: Henrik Gabriel Porthan, the Professor of Eloquence at the Academy of Turku in Finland, was one of the first scholars to describe the nature and effect of parallelism in Finnish vernacular poetry. In 1766 he designated these poems sung in a meter used widely in Baltic-Finnic languages as Runis nostris ("our poems") (Porthan 1867:320). The appropriation of this multiethnic poetic tradition culminated in the publication of Elias Lönnrot's Kalevala (1835 and 1849), the national epic of Finland that he created by using the Runis nostris, or oral poems collected in Finland, Karelia, and Ingria, as his sources. Since Lönnrot, the meter became known, somewhat anachronistically, as the Kalevala-meter. Porthan (1867:323) ... Read More

  • "The Language of Gods": The Pragmatics of Bilingual Parallelism in Ritual
           Ch'orti' Maya Discourse
    • Abstract: Parallelism is the foremost stylistic device in Mayan and other Mesoamerican languages (B. Tedlock 1985; Tedlock 1986; Brody 1986). Metrical features common to Western poetic traditions play no significant role in Maya poetics. According to Josserand (Josserand and Hopkins 1991:21), what meter and rhyme are to Western poetry, couplets and parallelism are to Maya poetry. The most common forms of parallelism in Mayan languages are couplet, triplets, and the quatrain, though distich couplets remain the dominant structuring mechanism. Maxwell (1997:101) defines couplets as "the stylized repetition of all or part of an utterance, echoing either form or content." Monaghan (1990:134) defines a couplet as the repetition of ...

  • Parallelism and the Composition of Oral Narratives in Banda Eli
    • Abstract: Roman Jakobson defines (1977 [1919]:25) parallelism as "le rapprochement de deux unités" ("the bringing together of two elements"; translation quoted in Fox 1988:3) so that they are perceived and interpreted in relation to one another. Parallelism is most obvious as a feature of formal, poetic style, and within this context it serves as a poetic function that projects the equivalence of two sound patterns or meanings from the axis of selection ("ladies," "gentlemen," "friends," "colleagues," "readers," and so on) to the axis of combination ("Ladies and Gentlemen!" (Jakobson 1960:358). The resulting message stands out as an image of the kind of language and behavioral control required by such occasions as public ... Read More

  • Parallelism and Musical Structures in Ingrian and Karelian Oral Poetry
    • Abstract: The focus of this essay is the complex relationship between textual parallelism and performance in historical oral poetry. Since there is no possibility of carrying out any personal ethnographic fieldwork, the main approach to the local categorizations and meanings of singing is to analyze recurrent patterns and combinations of different elements in archival material. This approach relates to discussions about ethnopoetics and textualizing oral poetry.1 Previously, I have analyzed the local understanding of genres and registers via the analysis of the relationships between poetic texts, melodic structures, singing practices, and performance arenas in archival material relating to one cultural area (Kallio 2013 and ...

  • Poetic Parallelism and Working Memory
    • Abstract: The type of parallelism considered here is a relation between sections of text such that each resembles the other in linguistic form, or in lexical meaning, or in form and meaning.1 The focus is specifically on cases where parallelism is found frequently or systematically, usually as a generic characteristic, or as a part of its poetic tradition. I suggest that this type of parallelism depends on both parallel items being held simultaneously in working memory. For example, Phillips (1981:114) describes a Minangkabau (West Sumatra) oral narrative called sijobang, in which "one notices how frequently there occur pairs of lines in which the sense of the first line is repeated in fresh words in the second." Here are ... Read More

  • Parallelism in the Hanvueng: A Zhuang Verse Epic from West-Central Guangxi
           in Southern China
    • Abstract: Parallelism is ubiquitous in Zhuang poetry and song and hence also occurs in ritual texts and a range of oral genres. Curiously, this salient fact has generally escaped the notice of scholars writing on the subject of Zhuang poetics. Discussion has generally been concentrated on line length, rhyming patterns, and stanzaic structures as found in Zhuang traditional song genres.2This essay looks specifically at the phenomenon of parallelism in one particular ritual text from west-central Guangxi. The Hanvueng is a long verse narrative that is recited at rituals intended to deal with cases of unnatural death and serious family quarrels, especially fraternal feuds. The plot involves an old king and his son by his first ... Read More

  • "Said a Word, Uttered Thus": Structures and Functions of Parallelism in
           Arhippa Perttunen's Poems
    • Abstract: Parallelism is one of the most outstanding features of the Finnic (or Balto-Finnic) tradition of oral poetry that is found throughout areas of present-day Estonia, Finland, and adjacent parts of Russia. Performers of this poetry speak several different but closely related languages: Finnish, Karelian, Ingrian, Votic, Estonian, and Seto. Nevertheless, the poetic idiom, or register, is quite uniform, sharing the basic characteristics of meter, non-stanzaic structure, alliteration, and parallelism, with some anticipated regional variation.1 It has various names in different languages. In Finland and Karelia, the most common designation is Kalevala-metric or kalevalaic poetry2 or runolaulu ("runo song").3 In Estonia it ... Read More

  • Parallelism and Orders of Signification (Parallelism Dynamics I)
    • Abstract: Discussions1 of parallelism in verbal art have customarily focused on semantic and grammatical parallelism between adjacent verses or equivalent units, "similarities between discourse segments that are sequentially juxtaposed" (Urban 1991:60).2 It is easy to get the impression that parallelism mainly concerns dyadic pairs that form couplets, even if it is common to acknowledge extended series of parallel verses,3 figures like cross parallelism or chiasmus,4 and parallelism between verses separated by one or a few lines of intermediate text.5 However, Gerard Manley Hopkins (1959 [1865]:84) reflected that "perhaps we shall be right to say all artifice, reduces to the principle of parallelism," a perspective that is ...

  • Parallelism in Karelian Laments
    • Abstract: Karelian lament poetry integrates a variety of forms of parallelism—different types of what Roman Jakobson (1981 [1966]:98) described as "recurrent returns"—that are both organizing principles for the poetic discourse and also rhetorical resources that a lamenter can draw on and manipulate in performance. Parallelism operates at the phonic level of sounds, both recurrent sounds in alliteration and recurrent melodic structures. It works in different ways at the level of individual words and formulaic expressions within a phrase. Parallelism is also prominent at the level of larger structural and thematic units. The types of parallelism in Karelian laments work complementarily with one another, and in several ... Read More

  • Prayers for the Community: Parallelism and Performance in San Juan
           Quiahije Eastern Chatino
    • Abstract: This essay examines parallelism and other essential features of ritual discourse in San Juan Quiahije, Eastern Chatino. The Chatino languages are spoken in the highlands of Oaxaca, Mexico. The essay focuses on the poetic and discursive features found in two impromptu prayers within a corpus of civic/religious ritual petitions that the members of the community refer to as La42 qin4 kchin4,1 or "Prayers for the Community."2The "Prayers for the Community" are part of a ritual carried out regularly by elders and traditional San Juan Quiahije (SJQ) authorities in their official capacity as community representatives. These dignitaries come together at dawn on the first day of each month and on high holidays—the most ... Read More

  • Parallelism in Arandic Song-Poetry
    • Abstract: The song-poetry performed by the Arandic people of central Australia is characterized by parallelism of sound, form, and meaning in both auditory and visual modalities. Parallelism here refers to the organized co-occurrence of elements to the extent that each resembles the other, but the elements are not identical to one another (for example, Frog 2014 and Fabb this volume). In Arandic song-poetry we find that adjacent elements as well as elements presented simultaneously in different modalities like song and dance, often resemble each other in a variety of ways. Consider the Anmatyerr couplet below, whose lines A and B exhibit parallelism in both form and meaning:1The rhythm in both lines of the couplet is ... Read More

  • Twin Constellations: Parallelism and Stance in Stand-Up Comedy
    • Abstract: This essay is located at the triple intersection between: 1) linguistic anthropological studies on poetic or tropic language use (for example, Silverstein 2004; Agha 1997); 2) performance theoretical folkloristics (for example, Briggs 1988; Bauman and Briggs 1990); and 3) humor studies dealing with the phenomena of analogy and irony (for a broad overview, see Attardo 1994). As I hope to demonstrate, parallelism, "repetition with patterned variation" (Brown 1999:224), is a concept that penetrates all three of these areas. Regarding the first field, Roman Jakobson (1960) expounded parallelism as manifesting the poetic function of language, as the poetic use of language par excellence. A staple feature of various ...

  • Multimedial Parallelism in Ritual Performance (Parallelism Dynamics II)
    • Abstract: Ritual performances create situations in which language, movements, spaces, and objects can all be coordinated in powerfully symbolic ways. The turn to performance expanded studies of verbal art from viewing tradition as text to tradition as embodied behavior wherein language is only one part.1 This expanded view on verbal art was well established already decades ago and continues to evolve.2 However, frameworks for analyzing relationships between linguistic and non-linguistic aspects of performance, relationships between speech, gesture, and movement through space, have remained less developed. The present article contributes to discussion by applying parallelism as a tool for approaching some of these relations ... Read More
