The main types of Philippine narratives are:

• Legend
• Myth
• Saga
• Poetry
• Chanting
• Singing
• Story telling

You can be sure to find more information on why these are the main types as you search on the internet, however they are all used to ensure that stories can be told without the use of paper and the need the have actual books.

The Philippine narrative is told though mouth and all of the stories are going to be developed over time, the fact that they are told and not written allows them to be more dramatic and have more of an affect on the person who is listening to the story. If you have never studied the Philippine narrative before you may be very surprised that it is all spoken and not written as it is in most cultures and countries.

This is why the narrative is studied, it is so different to anything else that you will have come across and it allows you to understand how different people around the world tell different stories to one another. You can be sure that you are going to be able to find more information on the different types of Philippine which are examined when you look online, here you are going to find certain articles and assignments which have been written for you to use and to ensure that you understand the Philippine narrative as much as possible so you can have a clear idea of how it affects the culture and the people within that culture.

Once you have a clear understanding you can go into more depth and study the subject further so you know exactly how it affects people differently to a normal book being written or read to a child and an adult.

Hello Godsgrace, why would they be so different from the features of for example narrative poetry - it may have a style, content, it may have universals, for example love....or hate....if its a novel, it will have a story, a beginning, middle and end... The narrator, will either pen it in the first person or write it as if someone else is the voice behind the words, is it fact or fiction, it will have a structure to it. There may be a force of tradition undepinning the writing, well, I'm assuming you want to write, or you may have an idea of the narrative of criticism - and the force of tradition - what is the theme you would like to speak or write about, If its historical then a number of themes might emerge. For example in and essay and style written by TS Eliot [poet] he uses scientific metaphors and analogies to illustrate and compare. And yes,In English writing we seldom speak of tradition, though we might refer to its name. What would be a good story plot and what theme would you choose to narrate?  Well, when it comes to language, any language system pre-exists the activities of any language user...What is most signifcant to you as the features of the way language is spoken in the Philippines, what is unique to it -- well lots of questions and to sum up I need a bit more information from you and hope this helps..
