1st paragraph: Oral composition broadly refers to the creation of organized verbal formulations without reliance on writing. Although in essence a familiar process in everyday speech, it has become a quasi-technical and debated term, applied especially to bringing into being relatively sustained examples of entextualized VERBAL ART , both ancient and recent. It has thus been of interest to linguists, anthropologists, folklorists, psychologists, historians, and specialists in specific languages and cultures, also linking to work on ORAL CULTURE, PERFORMANCE, STORY, LITERACY, and MEMORY.
