  1. Population size will have an influence on cultural complexity as measured by the number of narrative motifs in folk tales of magicAcerbi, Alberto - Cultural complexity and demography: The case of folktakes, 2017 - 2 Variables

    Acerbi, Kendal, and Tehrani examine the relationship between population size and cultural complexity as measured by a non-technological cultural domain: folktales. Three measures of complexity for folktales are analyzed, 1) number of tale types, 2) number of narrative motifs, and 3) number of traits in variants of two international folktales. Findings suggest that the relationship between cultural complexity and population may depend on the domain, as different domains vary in cultural maintenance and transmission.

  3. "The Hero should triumph less often in folk tales of societies in which the child training practices include severe punishment for aggression" (359)Wright, G. O. - Projection and displacement: a cross-cultural study of folktale aggression, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines aggression in folktales in relation to child socialization variables. The author suggests that punishment for aggression and aggression anxiety are related to how aggression is portrayed in folktales. Hypotheses are supported.

  4. "Punishment for aggression increases the intensity of aggression in situations which are distinctly dissimilar from those in which the punishment occurs" (357)Wright, G. O. - Projection and displacement: a cross-cultural study of folktale aggression, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines aggression in folktales in relation to child socialization variables. The author suggests that punishment for aggression and aggression anxiety are related to how aggression is portrayed in folktales. Hypotheses are supported.

  5. "Objects of displaced aggression are chosen farther and farther out on the generalization continuum as a function of the amount of aggression anxiety" (352)Wright, G. O. - Projection and displacement: a cross-cultural study of folktale aggression, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines aggression in folktales in relation to child socialization variables. The author suggests that punishment for aggression and aggression anxiety are related to how aggression is portrayed in folktales. Hypotheses are supported.

  6. "Agents of projected aggression [in folktales] are chosen farther and farther out on the generalization continuum as a function of the amount of aggression anxiety" (355)Wright, G. O. - Projection and displacement: a cross-cultural study of folktale aggression, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines aggression in folktales in relation to child socialization variables. The author suggests that punishment for aggression and aggression anxiety are related to how aggression is portrayed in folktales. Hypotheses are supported.

  7. "The strategic mode of competition tends to be modeled in the folk tales of tribes which are politically complex" (193)Roberts, John M. - Strategy in games and folk tales, 1963 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates the strategic mode of competition in both games of strategy and folk talkes. Various significant relationships between games of strategy, folktales, social complexity, and child rearing variables are observed.

  8. Folktale types will be traceable to ancestral Indo-European populations. (2)Da Silva, Sara Graça - Comparative phylogenetic analyses uncover the ancient roots of Indo-European..., 2016 - 2 Variables

    The authors compare language phylogenies and spatial distributions with folktale frequencies of Indo-European peoples in order to reconstruct their cultural transmission. A stronger association is found between folktale frequency and language phylogeny than has been proposed in earlier literature studies, indicating that vertical transmission is more influential on folktale distribution than horizontal transmission through spatial proximity. Finally, the frequencies of certain folktales appear to trace the ancestral divergences of Indo-European languages to a much deeper level than previously though, suggesting that folktales are representative of broader features of culture, rather than recent literary inventions.
