Ukrainian philologist Nazarij Nazarov has researched a popular fairy tale of the East Slavs that is known among the Ukrainians under the name “Ivasik Telesik”, among the Belarusians as “Sinek Pilipka”, and among the Russians as “Terešečka”. Of particular interest are several rhymed verses inserted in the text. Nazarov believes that these inserts primarily dissect the text, thereby creating a ceremonial form. A comparison of this Eastern Slavic tale with four Slovenian poems indicates that the purpose of these inserts may also be to soothe and lull to sleep.
