Appraisal of Computational Model for Yorb Folktale Narrative

Abstract

Our effort at developing computational models for African narratives, particularly those of Yorb folktales, is challenged by the diversity in concepts and methodologies in the discipline. This motivated us to pause and consider the various computational models of narratives in the literature. This is with a view to finding the most appropriate or otherwise adapt a closely related one for the purpose. Thorndyke's story grammar was among the models of narrative in the literature which were appraised, found close in structure and was adapted for the modelling of Yorb folktales narrative. In conclusion we found that the modified version of Thorndyke's model was appropriate for modelling Yorb folktales narrative.
