FYI the 'mare' from the term 'nightmare' is cognate with the German 'Märchen', so that 'nightmare' has little to do with horses or bad dreams. Rather, it's a story told during the night, while you sleep.
FYI The German word "das Märchen" (neutral gender) is the diminutive of the German word "die Mar" (female gender). "Mar" generally means "tale,
fiction", but also "report, information" Etymol. Dict., p.227.
Adding Storytelling as Learning/Some Indigenous American Community info
Hi all. I was looking into adding more to the idea of storytelling as a learning tool, especially in some Indigenous American communities. We've got a separate section of "learning" and "Indigenous Cultures" and this makes it sort of sound like the Indigenous use is not the same as learning. A lot of research states that storytelling in Indigenous communities IS their informal way of learning, so I want to touch on that. I'm going to add some explicit examples of storytelling, and some additional values and ways of storytelling. ```` — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jaylykens (talk • contribs) 05:42, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
I've reverted (again) the addition of yet another pictures. The argument that it is needed to represent that particular culture would then result in several hundred pictures being required. I can see an argument for expanding the section on person stories, maybe their use of architypes in which case something might be called for. In the meantime I'm open to argument here. ----SnowdedTALK 14:04, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Ok. If you say there are extra images in the article, we can manage them. Storytelling is a traditional art is different by cultures. We have 8 files in the articles that two of them are about cuture of India. Why?! India is only historic country in Asia? Persia is one of the oldest nations of the world but we can't see any evidence of it's culture. I remove one of the files from India and Add picture about Shahnameh in Contemporary storytelling topic. this is balancing.SaMin SAmIN (talk) 20:37, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
I think you are being a little precious about one culture. I don't see evidence of Australian aboriginal story telling (which is very different from western traditions and far older) nor the Celtic tradition, nor .....
OK you have a particular interest in Persian articles from your edit history, but moving around wikipedia inserting Persian material simply because it is Persian is not something I would recommend. Assuming the photograph you have inserted is not promotional I'm happy to let the substitution stand however.----SnowdedTALK 04:24, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
