I have chosen to illustrate the application of Fabb and Halle’s theory of

They represent the epics from the Balkans, English ballads and Latvian narrative and lyric dainas. Let it be the beginning for the exploration of commons aspects of formulae that go well beyond metrics.

meter; Latvian dainas; oral formulas; generating metrical grids; wellformed metrical line; epic songs; ballads
