Fabulous signs in the genres of children's literature
The first acquaintance with the art of the word beginsfor each person from a fairy tale, regardless of nationality and religion. And what is especially interesting is the fact that all folk tales are very similar in nature! Whether it's Tajik or Albanian, Russian or English - they all have their own special fabulous signs. Only the images of fairy-tale creatures and the names of heroes change, but the essence of the tale remains the same.
Begins almost every fairy tale with the beginning: "In a certain kingdom ... they lived ... were ..." And it ends with the generally accepted ending: "And who listened - well done!" Or "And they began to live - to live ..." These features (the beginning and ending) are - fabulous signs.
The third feature is the threefoldrepetition of any actions. For this, probably, even children, in general, the heroes are three! And whatever the main characters tried to do, only the third time they all went out as needed. Either they have to solve three tasks, fulfill three desires, meet with three travelers.
And since the origin of this art of writingfor children in ancient times, it was reflected in a beautiful folk language. Try to start a fairy tale to tell, and obsolete words and idioms, sayings and folk epithets are woven into oneself. If the girl is necessarily red, and even such a beauty, "what to say in a fairy tale, or describe a pen." And the fellow is always good there, and his head is so poor and violent! That's why they also distinguish such fabulous signs in a fairy tale as a special fairy tale language, in which obsolete words and indivisible word combinations are always found.
And certainly can not do in a fairy tale without fiction,magic or personification. The flowers are talking, the animals, or even the carpet-plane in the sky is flying or a miracle-yudo many-headed to the battle of heroes is causing. Both fiction and the struggle between good and evil are also marked as fabulous signs. 2 class is usually well versed in all these subtleties. Certainly, fairy tales have other features, other signs and features, but for children of seven to eight years it is enough to single out these - the main ones.
Although, of course, someone can argue: in the modern fairy-tale world there are many such works in which fairy-tale signs do not occur! The wranglers can be answered like this: there are also such works for children. There are no beginnings and endings in them, obsolete words and a triple repetition. And only in these literary creations such fabulous signs as fiction remained. Most likely, they can be attributed to fantastic or fairy tales, and not to fairy tales in the sense that we have in mind when speaking about the linguistic features of this literary genre.
Moreover, fairy tales are basically based onto short works. After all, they composed them during the evening work at a spinning wheel or knitting, in one particular group. Tomorrow could have come quite different people for a get-together, and yesterday, on the contrary, they could not come. Therefore, the tales fit into one evening. And if we talk about long fairy tales, for example, "Journey of Nils with wild geese" or "Carlson, who lives on the roof," these wonderful and interesting works should most likely be attributed to fairy tales.
Time is running ahead, not only is ourlife, but also literature. Naturally, children's fairy-tales change their style, their appearance. It's not scary, if the children notice this, even commendable. Perhaps, even worth emphasizing that in school, studying fairy-tale signs, we are talking mainly about folk tales. Although there are author's tales in which writers try to keep all the fabulous signs in full scale.
