The distinction between folklore and so-called folklorism is merely a result of the ethnological evaluation of the process that folk culture has gone through during last decades. It is neither simple nor fruitful to explore the boundaries between 'authentic' and 'imitative' forms of traditional folklore. Emphasizing the relationship between folklore and environment or stressing the original functions of the folklore limit traditional phenomena and maintain their past forms. On the contrary, the traditional phenomena gain different but natural social utilization by means of intermediation and presentation of traditional culture in the field of folklorism.
