    How to use "Folk tale" in context?

    A folk tale, sometimes abbreviated to folktale, is a traditional story, typically involving folk heroes and folk villains, that is not tallied in any extant literary traditions. Its normal context is oral and it is mainly transmitted by story-telling. Folk tales are found worldwide, though they may have different titles in different cultures, and they often have themes that are familiar to people in the culture in which they are found. Many folk tales are also found in oral traditions, including fairy tales.

    Folk tales are often transmitted without the intervention of a literary mediator, such as a storyteller or historian.
