Abstract:
This paper deals with a description of the Manobo all-night storytelling complex, the Manobo raconteur’s generic folk aim of ‘taking his listeners to the very place where his story is taking place’ and then ‘keeping them focused on his story’s development as it unfolds.’ Finally, the paper deals with a description of the wealth of linguistic devices employed by the Manobo raconteur for enabling him to accomplish his goal, and for involving his audience as Manobo society’s folk jurors in the preservation of their culture.
