Taxonomy of folktales from the greater Mekong sub-region

Abstract
This research contributes to the development of a taxonomy of folktales from the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) countries. A qualitative research method composed of two approaches was used in this study: 1) a hermeneutic study of existing documents, literature and databases on GMS folktales; and, 2) a taxonomic organization of the identified folktales. Content analysis and classification of GMS folktales from the reviewed resources combined with comparisons with existing folktale classifications using a concept-centric approach resulted in a taxonomy structure comprised of three main concepts and 13 sub-concepts: types (7 sub-concepts), motifs (4 sub-concepts), and origins (2 sub-concepts) of the folktales. In each sub-concept, the terms were assigned and ordered based on their occurrences in GMS folklores. There are 92 total terms in the developed taxonomy. The taxonomy is different from existing classification systems because GMS countries share similar cultures, beliefs, customs, traditions, and religions that are different from the other parts of the world. The taxonomy will be useful for knowledge organization in digital libraries as well as for future research on GMS folklore and related cultural information that may need to be preserved in other areas.
