Book Description Linguistic Society of the Philippines, 2008. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 274 pp., bibliography. A popular epic of the Ilianen Manobo society is that of the Tulelangan. Held by the older generation of Manobo to be an account of their Manobo ancestors performing heroic feats, it is sung in modern day Manobo language and is appreciated by young and old alike. Tulalang, the immortal hero fo the epic, is believed to have lived along the Kulaman River, where the corner posts of the home are said to still stand today. And while epic singers have now become extremely rare, many of the episodes presented in song in the Tulelangan epic are also narrated in prose in the genre of formal storytelling.
